Venue: Liverpool Town Hall, High St, Liverpool L2 3SW
Our 2018 conference will be held on June 13, 2018 and aims to explore Global Best Practices in Diversity & Inclusion particularly in relation to Supplier Chain Diversity and will look at how embedding Diversity and Inclusion enables companies to compete in global markets.
The conference will provide a unique opportunity for exchange of learning from, and network with, international leading diversity and HR professionals. Global Heads, Directors and VP’s of Human Resources and Diversity along with Boards Members of some of the world’s largest companies will be presenting alongside renowned authors, professors and experts to make up one of our most comprehensive agendas yet.
Our underlying themes throughout the afternoon conference of presentations and round-tables discussions will explore how Diversity can help organisations in Business Growth, Innovation & Talent Management. Topics will include : Leadership & Diversity / Inclusive Leadership / Diversity Recruitment / Diversity Leadership Metrics / Inclusive Procurement
The conference will focus on how to deliver sustained tangible results in Diversity and Inclusion in an increasingly globalised environment. Leading experts will contribute a rich and diverse perspective of the international challenges and opportunities of providing an integrated, effective and efficient diversity and inclusion model “fit for purpose and fit for practice.” The 2018 conference will aim to deliver a universally benchmarked framework for Diversity and Inclusion and will sit alongside the International Business Festival, being held in Liverpool in June.
As well as hearing from world class diversity and HR experts the conference will allow delegates to network with fellow professionals from across the globe.
A very important feature of the conference will be a Business Opportunity Fair. This will consist of Business to Business (B2B) Exhibition aimed at engaging diverse- and small- or medium-sized businesses into the supply- and value chain of large multi-national organisations. Therefore the large organisations with proven track record of providing opportunities for small, medium and diverse businesses, will be selected to attend the conference and match their opportunities with those businesses, enabling them to cast a wider net and tap into a larger pool of latent talent. By ‘diverse’ businesses we mean those owned by individuals who identify themselves as being belonging to the following groups: Black and Minority Ethnic (BME), women, Disability, LGBT, and Religious & Faith Beliefs. More inclusive and demographically representative supply chains help businesses generate services and products that are relevant to the diverse global community they serve.
