Diversity & Inclusion - A Practical Guide

Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace: A Practical Guide for Improving Your D&I Package in association with Pinsent Masons and Brook Graham:

Why Dignity & Inclusion and why now?

We’re currently working on what we believe will be the most useful and practical event on workplace diversity and inclusion you will ever have seen.

D&I is quite trendy, we admit that. It’s also vital for organisations that want to thrive, be seen as great places to work, and recruit and retain staff. A genuine programme of D&I will increase productivity and reduce risks of employee litigation.

We’re bringing together D&I experts that will set out practical options, useful insights, facts and figures that will help you bring your D&I package up to date. Through a series of short presentations, workshops and panel discussions, together with practical templates and checklists, you will leave this event with a huge number of useful suggestions for you to put into practice as you build your D&I strategy.

Around 75% of the workforce in 2020 will be Millennials or younger. They will expect their employer to have flexible options for working and to have a diverse and inclusive workforce. You can choose to ‘get with the programme’ or lose out this decade in your search for the best talent.

Sessions include:

  • The Business Case for D&I – Employees’ Happiness Pays for Itself.
  • Update on Legal Concepts in D&I – Getting it right.
  • Moving from our Traditional Background – Embracing New Cultures.
  • Neurodiversity and Reasonable Accommodations in the Workplace.
  • Covering & Uncovering and the Need to ‘Belong’ – The Psychological Weight in Not being Open about your true ‘self’ in the Workplace
  • Mental Health – building support
  • Learning from the Public Sector – the Journey to Pride in An Garda Síochána
  • Great Minds Think Unalike
  • Creating Alliances – the importance of Allies in supporting colleagues
  • Creating Authenticity – The importance of Board and SMT support in the successful development of a D and I culture
  • Diversity & Talent Attraction
  • Menopause – is the silence being broken?
  • Does AI need a D&I Reality?
  • Creating a Strategy – a Journey Not a Destination Parts 1 & 2.

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at organisations who have, or wish to have, a developed diversity & inclusion strategy. Whether you are in HR, a D&I specialist, or a senior executive who has responsibility for developing a policy, you will leave this event with many useful ideas and templates/checklists and more that will help you develop or further develop your D&I offering.

You will be able to take part in open discussions and to network with speakers and peers in order to create a focus for developing and improving your D&I strategy for your journey to a truly diverse and inclusive organisation. Scribes from Legal Island’s learning and development team will pass on suggestions, ideas and key takeaways from the event to every delegate to further reinforce learning.
