In this SPE workshop, we’ll go beyond diversity and share some of the best practices to support “a cultural transformation” to break the barriers and to build a truly diverse workplace. Across four interactive sessions led by industry leaders, fundamental questions related to company diversity and inclusion will be debated. How do we leverage the full potential of a workforce with diverse perspectives and backgrounds? How do internal policies relate to organisation inclusiveness? What role should education play in a diverse business? And for those returning to work after a career break, how can they be successfully reintegrated into the workforce?

Diversity in the workforce can be a key driver of success. A diverse organisation has the potential to be more successful, innovative and adaptable to the challenges of a fast-changing world. However, diversity alone will not give the full desired outcome. Adopting a fully inclusive company culture, where everyone feels valued, respected and heard is a key ingredient to capitalise on the unique perspective of having a diverse workforce. Although companies are aware of the benefits, many lack the tools, knowledge and infrastructure to result in meaningful long-term results. In addition, organisations ought to work towards building an inclusive culture where diversity is not a KPI but the culture of the organisation
