BOP | Ethnic Diversity: Team engagement, recruitment, and allyship


Ethnic Diversity: Team engagement, recruitment, and allyship

Join us for an evening presented by Suki Xiao, where we will talk about:

• the challenges that ethnically diverse staff go through

• what colleagues or leaders can do to help solve some of the challenges

• practical examples of how to engage staff

As part of this presentation, Suki will share with us her lived experiences, and give us some starting points for diversity, equity and inclusion.

We are already looking forward to the Q&A session and opportunity for networking too.

If you can’t attend in person, don’t worry, we have an online option available too - choose at registration.
