How do we create governance structures that reflect 21st-century society?
Businesses have the transformative power to change and contribute to a more open, diverse and inclusive society and this can be achieved by starting from within our own organisations.
Diversity in the business environment is about more than gender, race and ethnicity. It now includes employees with diverse religious and political beliefs, education, age, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientation, cultures and disabilities.
Companies are discovering that, by supporting and promoting a diverse and inclusive workplace, they are gaining benefits that go beyond what we see on the surface. By welcoming diverse voices to every level of our organisational structure whether audience, employee, board member or trustee, we gain a whole new set of perspectives, experience, ideas and skills that will help generate resilience and innovation.
Join us as we discuss the why, what, how and who of inclusive governance with Sybille Schiffmenn, Director at Deostara Ltd, Vick Bain, Women in Music Campaigner and Consultant specialising in board governance and Mita Desai from the Young Trustees Movement.
