Driving Sustainability and Inclusion Through Inner Development Goals green poster with headshots and titles of speakers.

Join us for a digital discussion on Driving Sustainability and Inclusion through Inner Development Goals with Chisom Udeze, Founder of Diversify Consult, Diversify & HerSpace and Dr. Fredrik Lindencrona, Head of Research Co-creation at the Inner Development Goals on February 23, 2024 from 12.00 to 13.30 CET.

This event will be held in collaboration with Inner Development Goals. In this event, we will discuss the principles of ways of thinking that underpin the concept of Inner Development Goals (IDGs). IDGs are the transformational skills and qualities that help us to live purposeful, sustainable, and productive lives. They are fundamental in the work to reach the Sustainable Development Goals. To illustrate the real-world impact of these principles, we will explore compelling case studies to showcase how the application of IDGs has contributed to positive change, emphasizing the intersectionality of sustainable development and inclusive practices.

Chisom will share insights from her extensive experience as a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Strategist, shedding light on how diversity and inclusion strategies can be integrated with inner development practices to drive sustainable impact. Dr. Fredrik Lindencrona will draw from his role as Head of Research Co-creation at Inner Development Goals, to offer valuable insights into the broader implications of cultivating inner development for societal and environmental well-being.

This collaborative event with Inner Development Goals aims to diversify perspectives on the application of inner development principles. Attendees will gain practical knowledge on leveraging these principles to drive sustainability impact and foster inclusion within their personal and professional spheres.

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with thought leaders and gain actionable insights. Register now and join us on this journey towards a more sustainable and inclusive future.
