Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (ED&I) can too often be overlooked at board level. Yet the issues – and risks – it raises are of strategic importance to the organisation. 

In this special session, expert employment legal adviser Ranjit Dhindsa, partner at Field Fisher, will share her insight into the effective ED&I strategies and what the issues are for boards to consider. 

 She will cover topics including:

–       Why is embedding an inclusive culture an important issue for executives and non-executives?

–       What is the difference between positive action and positive discrimination?

–       What disputes could arise if an inclusion and diversity strategy is not properly devised and implemented?

There will be a Q&A discussion and a chance for members to share their experiences under Chatham House rule.
