OUR AGENDA

WEDNESDAY 10th FEBRUARY 

PANEL 1  12PM - 12:45PM GMT |  Trend: Holistic Diversity

D&I agendas have traditionally focused on gender, race and sexuality, but diversity encompasses so much more than this. In 2021, organisations will need to broaden their thinking and their efforts to harness more than visible diversities.

 

Join leading D&I experts to discuss how they will be expanding their efforts and thinking so that everyone in their organisation is valued for their diversity.

PANEL 2  1PM - 1:45PM GMT | 2021 Trend: CEO Activists

Global research has shown that 68% of employees want their bosses to speak out on social and political issues. But speaking up about issues not directly about your business can be an uncomfortable and risky place – exposing them to media, investor and public criticism. Find out how today’s CEO’s are balancing the growing need to speak up and speak out with their roles.

Our panelists will share the impact this trend has had on their personal behaviour and choices to speak up – and the positive and negative reactions they’ve received. You’ll also learn about their own public commitments on social and political issues and the lessons they’ve learnt along the way about what works and what doesn’t. And finally, our CEOs will candidly share their unique stories and tips on how company leaders can learn to become spokespeople and activists.

PANEL 4  3PM - 3:45PM GMT | Moving the DIAL for socioeconomic equality  

Social mobility has stagnated in recent years and there has been little improvement in closing the opportunity gap between those who were born privileged and those who were born disadvantaged. It is vital that these social disparities are addressed as organisations look to bounce back from the impacts of the pandemic.

 

By fostering a socioeconomically diverse environment, employers can better access and retain new talent pools and bring in different expertise and perspectives into the workplace. In this powerful session, we'll hear directly from leading CPO's about their own organisation's journey to create greater socioeconomic equality.

After hearing about 'diversity as the spice of life' from Chef and author of The Chinese Takeaway Cookbook, Kowklyn Wan , we will hear from leading D&I change makers on how they're staying on top of the shifting landscape of diversity to ensure their knowledge is fresh and well-fed. 

 

We'll also hear about what they do to give back to their communities and themselves to keep ‘well-fed’ and avoid burnout in the ever-evolving diversity and inclusion arena.

PANEL 6  5PM - 5:45PM GMT | Trend – Polarisation – How this societal trend is impacting work in Diversity & Inclusion   

It’s no secret that we’re polarised as a society. Politics, religion and even food choices can create huge divides in our society. People are developing strong opinions on every topic and once our minds are made up about something, it can be really hard to listen to another point of view. People often rebel against rules, training, and guidance and do just the opposite. How is this growing trend impacting work around the world in diversity?

 

In this session, we'll hear from inspiring changemakers as they share some of the best ways they’ve found to bring opinionated and disparate people together, some advice on when to step up and speak your mind, as well as reflections on what they got right and what they got wrong along the way.

PANEL 7  12.30PM - 1:15PM BST | 2021 Global Trends that D&I Leaders Can’t Ignore

After hearing a keynote from Ben Page, CEO of Ipsos MORI with '5 Global Diversity Trends for 2021',  our panelists will review and dive deep into what these mean for every D&I professional.

 

In this session, our leaders will discuss how their organisations are using these trends to design and activate diversity programs to ensure they succeed, which trends worry them the most and why, and finally which trend they feel will have the most significant impact on the field of D&I in 2021.

PANEL 8  1.30PM - 2:20PM GMT | Feeding the Future of Diversity – Developing the Next Generation

Embracing diversity is about developing excellence for the future. The world of work is changing – the jobs of tomorrow have not been created today – and so it is ever more important than ever that we are able to tap into and develop the best talent to help us meet those challenges. We need diversity in our businesses. People who have different thinking styles, who can offer unique perspectives to problem solving, to avoid group think and foster innovation. 

 

In this session we'll hear how our panelists are feeding the future of diversity in their organisations, what key areas they have identified and developed that are true game changers, and finally they'll candidly share their unique stories showing there is no ‘one-way’ to make progress, but help us understand how we can all reach our destinations in different ways.

PANEL 9  2.45PM - 3:35PM GMT | : Feeding the Future – Driving Change in Sport

Sport inspires, enthrals and motivates us. And it is also a powerful public platform to support diversity around the world. This session will begin with a montage of key female sporting influencers who will share some of the changes to equality they’ve seen in sport over the past year.

 

After that, we’ll hear from leading sport CEO’s on what they are doing to drive real and measurable change on and off the field, including how they've faced into racism and prejudice to create teams that excel and support each other – and how they are now looking beyond BAME to address wider diversity like LGBTQ+. They'll also share how  they are creating inclusive environments of trust and openness in their organisations – so players have the confidence to be who they are. And finally you’ll hear the personal stories and lessons they’ve learnt along the way about what works and what doesn’t.

PANEL 10  4PM - 4:50PM GMT | Supplier Diversity

Supplier Diversity means creating a supplier base that reflects the diversity of our societies, customers and employees. A diverse supply network will out-think, out- innovate, and out –perform a non-diverse supply network for many reasons - they are more agile, responsive, innovative, more likely to hire a diverse pool of employees and give back to their community. ​

In this powerful session, our panelists will review and discuss the trend for large organisations to demand diverse supply network and the challenges and opportunities faced by companies to create a diverse supplier base.

 

Find out some of the risks and rewards of creating a more diverse supply chain, the benchmarking and measurement they have in place to ensure change happens, and finally what demands are their clients making of them – and what more do they expect in 2021?

PANEL 11  5PM - 5:50PM GMT | Trend – Recognising the Value in Cognitive Diversity

The world of work is changing – the jobs of tomorrow have not been created today – and so it is ever more important than ever that we are able to tap into and develop the best talent to help us meet those challenges. We need diversity in our businesses. People who have different thinking styles, who can offer unique perspectives to problem solving, to avoid groupthink and foster innovation.

 

In this session, we'll hear how our leaders have seen different thinking and working styles benefit their own organisation, how they’ve learned to support neurodiversity in their organisation, and how they are creating inclusive environments of trust and openness in their organisations – so neurodiverse individuals have the confidence to be who they are.

PANEL 12  6PM - 6:45PM GMT | How we can all be Change Agents & Activists in 2021

Each one of us is a diverse individual and we all can be change agents. If we want to see true change, we have to use whatever megaphone we each have to speak for justice. Speaking up in support of diversity and inclusion and speaking up against racism, prejudice and discrimination. Speaking up when it’s uncomfortable and difficult and from a position of no power and speaking up when it’s easy and possible from a position of leadership.

 

In our final panel, we’ll hear inspirational stories of our panelists’ impact when speaking up and a call to action for all of us to start today.  Our speakers will share personal stories of when they spoke up for others and the impact it had, tips on how to get comfortable feeling uncomfortable when speaking up, how to deal with the risk of backlash or retaliation and some key lessons have they learnt about being courageous and speaking up.
