Topics to be explored at the 2023 forum include

  • Positioning ED&I as a business opportunity and not only an HR issue – getting your governance structure right to ensure success;
  • The intersection of sustainability, purpose and inclusion;
  • How to approach ED&I as a business imperative and use data and insights to drive accountability and deliver on business outcomes;
  • The role of an effective global ED&I strategy to effectively drive ED&I outcomes;
  • Prioritize and disproportionately invest in areas where data tell us matters most and drives the greatest outcomes for ED&I;
  • The role of people leaders to drive measure ED&I outcomes;
  • How disability fear has led us to allow exclusion;
  • How to remove systemic barriers for disabled people;
  • We will hear from a top exec who took their company on a disability inclusion journey from their employees to customers. Why did they do this? What were the challenges, outcomes and benefits?
  • ED&I under threat – ensuring ED&I gains are not lost against a rising tide of hate;
  • At a time when the ‘war on woke’ is being normalised, how do we keep inclusion at the center of thinking;
  • Managing the backlash: How to keep moving forward when communities are being weaponized for political gain?
  • Managing the “why are we still talking about this” lack of realisation that inequality is on the rise.
