Breakfast with Frost: Stephen’s Big D&I Opportunities Vital to the New Workplace
Breakfast with Frost: Stephen Frost examines three major D&I opportunities to arise since the Covid outbreak and their importance for the workplace.
Stephen Frost of Included is one of the UK’s foremost D&I experts. He led the D&I initiatives at the London Olympics and Paralympics which are regarded as one of the most successful games in modern times.
In this breakfast webinar Stephen reviews the most important developments for HR and D&I practitioners relevant to the world of work since January 2020, which can be pulled together into three main themes:
- New ways of working and the impact on different minority groups within the workforce
- Employee activism in relation to mental health, LGBT+, global warming and more
- The importance of data for employees and prospective employees in relation to your D&I credentials
Stephen’s presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session.
