January 25 @ 13:00 - 15:00FREE
Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is imperative for a sustainable, competitive and innovative company and society at large. Diversity also goes beyond the outward perception of a company – it includes how the internal structures work and signal the value systems of an organization’s management or leadership team.
This series is designed by Diversify to centre Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace. We look forward to seeing you!
In our first D&I session for 2023, our speakers, Chisom Udeze, 3x Founder, Economist and DEI Strategist, Dr. Poornima Luthra, Author, Educator and DEI Expert, and Astrid Sundberg, Director DEI at Oda, will explore how inclusive are workplace DEIB initiatives, learnings from 2022 and the common mistakes to avoid in 2023.
