2020 has brought significant societal changes and movements that have impacted how we live, work, and think. Conversations around Inclusion and  Diversity are becoming more open, and organizations recognize where they may need to improve. As we rebuild the new normal with careful consideration, uncover and learn how YOU can play an integral role in the repositioning and restructuring for an INCLUSIVE Ecosystem. 

So, beyond the leadership statements, online discussions, and social media challenges, how do YOU actually advance towards diversity, equity, and inclusion?The active inclusion starts with YOU, on an individual level.  If you’re not quite sure, how YOU can lead inclusion, join us on 28 January, where we accelerate the conversation of Inclusion and Diversity and leverage the collective knowledge of leaders across the Brainport and beyond.
