Stand up for Diversity

Our Interactive Webinar Interview took place on 27 March 2018. Watch a recording of the webinar.

Why watch this webinar recording?

The recent #TimesUp and #MeToo movements are the latest in a long line of campaigns highlighting how far we are from delivering a diverse, equal and safe workplace.

While Human Resource professionals have long championed the Diversity and Inclusion agenda, it has not (until now) made it to the attention of the C-suite and CEO. Equally, Global Mobility professionals have an important part to play as international experience is a key stepping stone on the promotion ladder to Leadership and C-suite.

Stand Up and Deliver on Diversity was an engaging and interactive interview that examined strategies to deliver a diverse and inclusive workforce.

Who should watch this?

  • Global mobility
  • Learning and development
  • Human resources
  • Diversity and inclusion
