InvitedWho’s Missing from your Table?

The way organisations create content or problem solve is only as good as the talent they draw in. How much diversity exists in this mix? How inclusive is this space for those that don’t reflect the majority demographic? When leaders are not consciously inclusive, they become deliberately exclusive and the impact of missing perspectives is detrimental to growing your business. This session will tackle the long game of doing diversity better so your decision making table is representative.
