Join us for our Diversity & Inclusion Conference

Implementing and innovating a diversity and inclusion strategy has never been so important. The wide range of business and people benefits are widely reported and known, but businesses need to move from reactive to proactive and start making real change; let’s cut through statements of intent and make a difference. However slow and steady it may be. Let’s foster a purposeful workplace culture, and shift the dial from diversity to equality.

Our Diversity & Inclusion Conference returns. Join us in this interactive conference and be inspired by our keynote speakers, case study presentations and panel discussions. The sessions are bound to leave you with a multitude of valuable insights and knowledge to drive your D&I strategy forward!

Learn everything there is to know about…

Racism, Disability, Returners, Inclusivity,


A perfectly balanced agenda carefully designed to maximise knowledge intake, peer-to-peer networking and tool showcasing.
Speaker sessions will be followed by roundtable discussions, where you will learn how to overcome the challenges you face in in-house recruitment.
We’ll be rounding off this unique conference with complimentary and well-deserved social networking drinks.
