Workplace Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Conference 2021
Conference: 31 August-1 September 2021 | Workshop: 2 September 2021
CEO’s welcome letter
Diversity is all around us; global economic trends and shifts in population structures have changed the way we operate and the environment we operate in.
Furthermore, significant global events in 2020 have influenced conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion and accelerated organisations’ response to building inclusive workplaces.
Research shows us that it’s those inclusive cultures that are key to tackling inequity head-on.
We have also seen how the health, wellbeing and psychological safety of our people are critical in providing sustainable business results.
The time is ripe for us to share those learnings to help drive collective momentum in this movement for change.
Join us at the Workplace Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Conference 2021 to discuss some of the existing complex issues in diversity, equity and inclusion as well as the emerging themes in the practice.
This is an exciting opportunity to bring together the ecosystem of organisations, advocacy groups, and passionate practitioners working in this space. They will share lived experience and stories, evidence-based findings and action plans that work in the real world.
Ma te whiritahi, ka whakatutuki ai nga pumanawa o tangata – together we’ll weave the realisation of potential so please join us and bring your ideas to this important korero.
