WIN Diversity & Inclusion Forum 

Creating an Inclusive Organization

26 November | 11:30-14:00 CET

A world in transformation - how is new technology, the changing political climate, rapid pace of change and the gender revolution impacting business, society, you and me?
Join us as we gather to discuss how to create courageous, inclusive and innovative organizations - organizations that are actively shaping a future in which we all thrive. Let's become aware of our biases and larn how to catch and eventually eliminate them. Every one of us is connected and how you do all you do matters. What are the actions needed to manage unconscious bias at your workplace and ensure an organization where everyone thrives?

We are leading and working in an environment of unprecedented change at a global level whether it be technological innovation, automation and social changes.

We will begin by exploring, what do the larger trends and changes mean for companies and for women as individuals?  We gather to look at the highest of visions, strategies and best practices and to explore how to accelerate progress. We will hear a company case from our co-host and take part in a practical workshop to explore how to create an organization that is inclusive and that will form a sustainable future.
How do we overcome the hurdles that prevent us from being ourselves, feeling valued, speaking out and stepping up? What are the meaningful innovations that can stem from a culture of inclusion? We gather to look at best practices and to explore how to accelerate progress.
