The NHS Employers annual diversity and inclusion conference is being held on 21 September at the Business Design Centre, Islington.
This year we have a fantastic programme planned for delegates and are lucky to welcome global experts and inspirational key note speakers including Peter Cheese, Chief Executive, CIPD, Michael Bach, Founder and CEO, Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion, Belinda Parmar, Chief Geek, Empathy Business and Dr Manuela Barreto from the University of Exeter.
The conference will be closed by Amar Latif the blind British entrepreneur, television presenter, actor, director, motivational speaker and world traveller.
The focus for 2017
With the introduction of STPs, NHS organisations are now encouraged to collaborate, rather than compete, to meet the challenges facing their local services. The conference will give delegates the opportunity to focus on the role played by diversity and inclusion in achieving this.
On the day delegates will:
- hear about leading edge diversity practice from across both the public and private sectors
- network with diversity leaders from across the UK
- listen to the latest ideas and thinking on inclusive cultures and the link to innovation and collaboration
- develop your knowledge and understanding of how diversity can positively influence organisational change.
Take a look at a short video from last year's conference and hear Dan Robertson, a leading expert on diversity and inclusion in the workplace talking about the importance of such events.
Here's what others had to say about the 2016 conference:
"If you are serious about changing the diversity and inclusion culture in the NHS, this is a must attend event for you."
"I have returned to my organisation, reinvigorated to push forward with the changes that need to be made to improve the environment for both staff, patients and service users."
