Diversity & Inclusion

An inclusive workplace culture is one where people can bring their best selves and their unique perspectives to work. Whilst diversity can be readily measured, inclusion is much less tangible and more difficult to evaluate. It is the daily behaviour of employees that determine whether or not a workplace is truly inclusive.

Inclusion enables individuals to be respected, valued and to voice their ideas openly. In an inclusive culture actions speak louder than words.

Recent studies and research provides increasing empirical evidence that inclusive workplaces promote diversity which in turn leads to more successful organisations.

We have organised a panel-based discussion with four diversity and inclusion champions to explore this topic, in particularly they will discuss

  •  The signs that a workplace has an inclusive culture and potential roadblocks and barriers that limit inclusion in our career journey
  • The role that risk and audit functions play in assessing and promoting inclusion within their workplace
  • Some successful initiatives that have been practiced within risk functions and audit functions.
