Multiple studies continue to demonstrate the vast power of inclusion and diversity within organisations: from driving growth and boosting innovation to helping to retain top talent and, ultimately, improving an organisation’s bottom line. Distinct diversity dividends have been calculated, showing incredible boosts to UK GDP if ethnic minorities and women advanced in the workplace at the same rate as their white, male counterparts.
But why is this still not translating into meaningful change? Ethnicity and gender pay gaps persist, boardrooms remain overwhelmingly white and male and many minorities still grapple with bringing their true self to work each day. Organisations are still struggling to reflect the society they serve.
What tangible steps should organisations be taking? How can we move this conversation forward to create inclusive and welcoming cultures to help all employees thrive? How can companies advance their diversity and inclusion policies to engender long-lasting and profound change? How can we all begin to change the ratio?
The GG2 Diversity Conference returns this October 10 to answer some of these questions…crucially through the unique BAME lens. Hear from top leaders and thinkers from a range of sectors and backgrounds who will share practical advice, case studies and real-world experience to provide you with key action points to bring back to your organisation. Tackling a range of topics from the ethnicity pay gap and BAME and LGBTQ+ intersectional identities to mental health and disability inclusion in the workplace, the GG2 Conference will ensure you walk away with the tools to spark real change to make diversity and inclusion the norm. We hope our audience will leave with practical action points to take back to their organisation, sparking meaningful and long-lasting change and inevitably to
change the ratio.
