  • Networking coffee break
  • Pursuing better together: Harness the power of intersectionality to help you achieve your potential

    Embracing different perspectives and ideas creates more effective, productive, and sustainable organizations. As an industry, we’ve come a long way, but we still are growing. It is vital for industry leaders to evolve current thinking on diversity, equity, and inclusion to include considerations of intersectionality, an academic term that recognises how different aspects of a person combine to create overlapping areas of privilege and oppression (Kimberlé W. Crenshaw, 1989). In this session, our panel will explore how to build on current DEI programs to understand how intersectional groups experience the workplace. By including intersectionality, we can advance opportunities for all and enable each other to succeed.

    • Learn about intersectionality and why is it important to overcoming inequality in the workplace.
    • Discover how to apply intersectionality to empower your workforce and your team.
    • Examine issues in the workplace through an intersectional lens and learn practical tips and actionable takeaways.
  • Breaking the taboos – Supporting women’s health at every career stage

    Women face health issues and challenges throughout their lives and introducing a specific women’s health strategy can provide practical advice on how to support women to thrive in the workforce. How can we create an open culture where women feel supported, confident, and safe to talk about health issues like menopause and miscarriage? How can you take control of your own health in the workplace? Hear how our speaker has implemented a culture that prioritizes women’s health and the strategies you can implement in your own organization.  

    • Conversations to expand line managers’ awareness and understanding 
    • Discover how small adjustments can have a significant impact 
    • A breakdown of common taboos around women’s health issues for the benefit of your workplace
