We are delighted to announce that gdb is supporting the inaugural Gatwick Diamond Skills Summit, taking place on Friday 9 March 2018.
The CBI says that businesses are best served by creating inclusive workplaces, enabling talent from all backgrounds to flourish. Together, companies can learn from each other’s experience to identify and nurture a diverse pool of talent.
Focused on the theme of “Diversity Brings Dividends”, this new event will help us all to discover how improving the diversity of our teams benefits all organisations and businesses of all sizes - we wanted to share with you the opportunity to attend so here are some details…
The Gatwick Diamond Skills Summit is taking place on 9th March at Canon UK in Reigate. Running from 9am to 2pm, the event is themed ‘Diversity brings Dividends’ and will provide information and working examples of diversity and inclusion in action. The speaker line-up includes:
