The Diversity and Inclusion series is aimed at diversity and inclusion specialists, HR professionals and senior management teams. It is a platform for businesses to come together with key organisations to discuss why business needs to address these issues in the workplace, and how to get started. We will host a series of webinars that will focus on race, LGBTQ+, disability and gender. Each webinar will feature key advocates, best practice organisations, and a range of inspirational guest speakers.

With disabled people making up 38% of the working population in Northern Ireland*, it is clear that embracing all abilities in the workplace makes good business sense.

Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from an inspirational disability campaigner and a leading business that will offer best practice solutions on key diversity and inclusion issues.

This webinar will focus on the following:

  • The Purple Pound
  • How disabled people contribute economically and socially
  • How businesses can adapt business practices and increase accessibility
  • The importance of forming employee networks
  • Providing a voice for marginalised groups

Speakers include:

  • Dermott Devlin – Disability Campaigner and Founder of My Way Access
  • Donna Marie Gill – Diversity & Inclusion Lead, Danske Bank

Attendees will be emailed a secure link following registration. For more information, email deirdre.morrissey@bitcni.org.uk
