This year’s Diversity Day will look at the wider issues concerning diversity. Whilst situations highlighting diversity are in the news every day and there have been many legislative changes that affect the configuration of the workforce, it’s vital for businesses to implement strategic diversity policies rather than seeing diversity as a ‘tick-box’ exercise. Those organisations that realise that diversity is all about embracing and utilising difference in its widest sense, are those that will benefit from increased innovation and creativity, engaged employees and, ultimately, larger profits. Variety of education, training, family background, ways of thinking and working are just some of the differences that help to create a vibrant and successful working culture.

However, ensuring that everyone – from Board members to the least experienced employee – understands the relevance of embracing diversity isn’t easy. Leading the way for new understanding between employees and departments and bringing about significant culture change within an organisation can be a challenge for even the most skilled HR directors. This year’s summit offers guidance for leading diversity implementation, organising global strategies and considers the tangible business benefits of a joined-up policy for diversity and inclusion. In addition we focus on two key aspects of diversity: age, in the light of the forthcoming age regulations; and long-term/mental illness and disability. Case studies and insights from experts in the field will be interspersed with frequent opportunities for delegates to discuss the issues and share their own current challenges. Limited to 70 delegates, Diversity Day is an excellent opportunity to network with other senior HR practitioners, gain useful information and debate issues.
