The Herald & GenAnalytics

Diversity Conference

At the beginning of 2020 no-one could have anticipated the impact of Covid 19 on our society and our economy. We have had to adapt in ways that seemed unthinkable just a few months ago. We cannot underestimate the challenges that our economy will face over the next 12 months however we have seen examples of resilience, innovation and collaboration. We have also witnessed the stark reality of inequality that still exists in our society today along with a determination to make things better now and for future generations.

 

This is why Diversity and Inclusion continues to matter and it is why The Herald and GenAnalytics delivered the Diversity Conference again this year – building on our success of conferences in the past. We cannot shy away from the conversation about how inclusive and diverse our workplaces are.

This year’s virtual conference allowed us to open up the event to an even wider and bigger audience through our unique online format. The format changed but the message remains the same. Diversity and inclusion matters.

The Herald & GenAnalytics Diversity Conference

Diversity and Inclusion continues to matter, and it is why The Herald and GenAnalytics are committed to delivering the Diversity Conference again this year – building on our success of conferences in the past. We cannot shy away from the conversation about how inclusive and diverse our workplaces are. We know that organisations want to do the right thing. They recognise that diversity and inclusion is good for business, it helps to foster successful teams and enables all individuals to achieve their ambitions.

Conference Programme

Diversity drives business performance, delivers economic growth, retains talent and builds successful teams. Companies and organisations that embrace diversity, perform better than those who do not. They are more profitable, can attract and retain top talent and they better understand and reflect their customer base and the people they serve.

The 2020 programme was carefully designed to educate and inspire delegates and included;

  • Keynote Speakers
  • Panel Discussions
  • Multiple Interactive Breakout Sessions
  • Case Studies
  • Networking Opportunities
  • Real Life Stories
