Embracing Diversity & Inclusion in Business

Join us to learn what diversity and inclusion is, why it matters and how to develop a diverse and inclusive workplace.

In these challenging times, where we are seeing the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on Black, Asian and minority ethnic people and have witnessed anti-racism protests around the globe.

Business leaders want and have a responsibility to act on diversity and inclusion within their organisations, being aware of the issues that affect our people, customers and communities around Race, Disability, Age, LGBTQ and Gender.

This is not just the right thing for businesses to do,  it's the smart thing – research shows that businesses that promote a diverse and inclusive workplace are more productive and more profitable. 

We are delighted to invite you to the first event in this series to help you understand how to move towards a more diverse and inclusive organisation.

You will have the opportunity to hear from:

Sandra Kerr CBE

Business in the Community Race Equality Director, who will talk about the current diversity and inclusion landscape, the case for change and the practical steps you can take within your business.

A panel of businesses

Including representatives from Irwin Mitchell, Henry Boot  and a number of other SME’s across South Yorkshire, who will share their approach, learning and the challenges they have faced on their diversity and inclusion journey.

Event partners

This interactive discussion is hosted by Sheffield City Region Chambers in partnership with Business in the Community, the Department for Work and Pensions and Sheffield Business Together.

Joining details will be sent out the day before the event.
