We all know what the research tells us: diverse workplaces are more innovative and productive, with greater staff well-being and retention. But many of us are still struggling to make this a reality. How can you avoid common pitfalls and move your organisation forward?

Topics covered:

  • The impact of Black Lives Matter and other movements, including those from the business community.
  • Unconscious bias – some key court cases
  • Positive action (which is lawful under the Equality Act 2010, though rarely used) compared with ‘positive discrimination’ (which is
    unlawful in the UK save for some exceptions for disability).
