Economist’s Diversity conference


Economist Diversity   My next conference with the Economist is their Diversity conference in December:

“Businesses are facing intensifying pressure from investors and stakeholders to ramp up their diversity initiatives.

Ensuring there is inclusion at every level of your organisation is not just a good thing to do. several studies show that companies with a greater degree of diversity at every level perform better than their less diverse counterparts.

As part of our highly successful Talent and HR series, The Diversity summit will provide a platform for intelligent conversation on the value of inclusion in business. It brings together 150 business leaders, diversity and HR experts, investors, psychologists and thought-leaders to examine how to unlock the full potential of diversity.”


Speakers include:

  • Rbert Guest, Business Editor, The Economist
  • Lord Browne of Madingley, Partner and Managing Director, Riverstone
  • Juliana Oyegun, Chief Diversity Officer, World Bank
  • Win Bischoff, Chairman, Lloyds Banking Group
