About The Talk

Diversity has become something of a buzzword for modern businesses, but the importance of creating a diverse and inclusive culture runs further than surface-level adjustments. Thinking through the wider meaning of diversity has the potential to reinvigorate your entire organisation.

In this virtual talk, we will discuss the importance of Deep-Level Diversity (which includes such things as education, values and neurotypicality) as well as the role that various psychological factors play in shaping our relationships and experience of work. Some discussions will employ anonymity to allow a free expression of different perspectives.

The zoom session will open at 10:45am UK time, and the 1 hour talk will start promptly at 11am. If you are based outside the UK please check a converter to determine what time this event starts in your local timezone.
