About this event

It is increasingly important for managers and leaders to consider the importance of leading diverse teams and how this will positively impact their organisation and employees. By adopting a culture encompassing equality, diversity and inclusion this will drive talent, resilience and empowerment within organisations ultimately eradicating racism.

1000 Black Voices amplifies the voices of the Black community, with the goal to facilitate positive change. They educate people on what it means to be Black by aiding organisations, institutions and communities that want to develop their inclusion-building and antiracism experiences.

Join us on Tuesday 4th October, for a fireside chat with Dr Elizabeth Shaw of 1000 Black Voices, where we will be discussing the importance of adopting a culture centred around equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
