A dinner discussion hosted by FT | IE Business School Corporate Learning Alliance
The diversity and inclusion revolution is rising up the business agenda as companies tap a global and rapidly changing customer pool. But diversity involves more than issues of identity or demographic. Although essential to avoid bias based on gender and race, companies must also be aware of discrimination (such as in hiring or promotion decisions) against those who think in unconventional ways.
The session will provide executives with an opportunity to discuss the topic, think about strategies to pursue organisational diversity and drive change.
Pilita Clark, Associate Editor and Business Columnist at Financial Times was joined by Dr Celia de Anca, IE professor of Global Diversity, and Director of IE’s Centre for Diversity to facilitate the conversation. Questions addressed included:
HR Talks gather small groups of senior executives together to debate leadership challenges, approaches and strategies. Hosted by FT Journalists and members of our global educator network, these sessions encourage conversations among selected audiences in private settings.
