About the event

Calling all people and organisations working in digital!

This is the second meetup of the Diversity Working Group. Our mission is to collectively share and improve our practice around inclusion, diversity and accessibility.

Join us to help shape the discussion, and make meaningful changes at your organisation and across the sector.

How do we build workplaces which are inclusive to all, help attract a more diverse workforce, and ensure everyone can benefit from a fulfilling career in digital?

This event will draw upon Wired Sussex’s recently launched Skills and Talent Manifesto; looking at how, together, we can make Greater Brighton the best place in the UK for anyone to have a fulfilling career in digital.

The agenda will include:

Developing a mission statement for the group

Exploring how we create an action plan to deliver meaningful change (rather than just talk about it)

Why is our sector so over-represented by white male CEOs and how do we best engage with them to develop a high impact D&I strategy across our area - or do we even need to?
