This month we are delighted to welcome Emma Shepherd and Luke Peters (AKA Still Shadey) to talk on the subject of equality and diversity.
The Equality and Diversity Masterclass will look at: –
- How improving your understanding of Inclusion and Diversity will pay huge dividends to even the smallest of businesses
- How making your website more accessible can help you tap into £274b worth of ‘purple’ spending power
- How you can find disabled talent and how it won’t cost you a penny to recruit and retain them as you grow your business
- The wider equality, diversity and inclusion agenda
- Windrush anniversary
- Luke’s Story
The speakers are:
