Inclusivity & Diversity


Diversity remains a key challenge for the tech sector. Only 15% of the tech workforce are from BAME backgrounds, and gender diversity is currently sitting at 19% compared to 49% for all other jobs. Diversity and inclusion is the practice of acknowledging differences between people and ensuring that everyone is included regardless of their characteristics. This event, facilitated by Tech Nation, is for businesses who recognise and understand the importance of D&I and need practical knowledge on how to start embedding effective D&I practices into their tech and digital businesses.

Join Jem Henderson from Tech Nation alongside a panel of leaders in this space as we talk through aspects of diversity and inclusion including:

  • Different forms of diversity including gender, race, sexuality, neurodiversity, and more.
  • How to build an inclusive environment
  • What needs to be done across all sectors to be better at D&I

In this session you will gain:

  • Insights into why you need to think about D&I
  • Confidence to talk about D&I in your workplace
  • Strategies to open up the dialogues with your colleagues and employees
