People are at the heart of any successful organisation. Diversity and inclusion is essential to achieve objectives and drive improvement, as well as maintaining legal and ethical standing in the eyes of shareholders, regulators and the wider community.
d&i Leaders is dedicated to providing high-quality events and information which help d&i and HR professionals deliver positive change within their organisations.
What makes us different
High-level summits are at the core of what we do. We carry out independent research to ensure the programmes feature a diverse range of speakers offering fresh-thinking and tackle the critical d&i related challenges. We are not afraid of asking tough questions and ensure all attendees have a voice through interactive polling and audience engagement technology.
We believe in purpose beyond profit. All summit attendee travel is offset through our carbon offsetting partner ClimateCare. We only host our events at venues who put sustainability at the heart of what they do. We work closely with them to reduce the impact of our events in terms of waste, energy usage and ensure food is organic, in-season and food miles are minimised.
Membership is free for in-house d&i and HR related professionals – By becoming a member of d&i Leaders we commit to offering discounts to attend our summits, plus exclusive invites to complimentary networking events and access to free information such as reports, interviews and diversity and inclusion related articles.
