About the event

Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging in Tech image

While there has been a continued awakening around diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in the technology sector, it’s clear there is some way to go until it is a positive and fair place where everyone can flourish.

Evidently, confronting imbalances within your business will lead to increased prosperity and growth, not only for your organisation and colleagues, but for society as a whole.

With this in mind, we would like to invite you to a special evening with award-winning Global Diversity and Inclusion Leader, Sheree Atcheson. Sheree’s talk will address:

- Why DEI is critical to the success of your business

- The effect on our sector and individual workplaces if we keep on the trajectory we've been on (spoiler, it’s not good)

- How we can all be the change we need, through both small and big changes

So, if you would like a better understanding of the challenges underrepresented groups face, how you may be contributing to them (even unknowingly), and steps you can take to improve DEI and foster a sense of belonging, come along.
