2016 Event

The 2016 event was the first opportunity of its kind that provided an opportunity for executive champions and diversity professionals to learn, share and network with D&I thought leaders from across the continent.

Organizations that can navigate the journey from diversity to inclusion have the elixir to fuel a truly high performance organization. This conference was an opportunity to recognize the competencies needed to effectively assess true ability, to value and harness differences and to create safe cultures where individuals can bring their whole selves to the workplace.

Beyond the business case, this conference was designed for corporate inclusion champions, executive sponsors, leaders of employee resource groups and talent management professionals who understand the inclusion imperative but are looking to expand their knowledge of the dimensions and intersections of diversity and unconscious bias to lead the diversity journey in their organization.
