Social Inclusion Knowledge Session #1

Mar 15, 2021

VENUE: Webinar

TIME: 11:00am - 12:00 noon

Our first Social Inclusion Knowledge Session of 2021 will take place on Monday, 15th March from 11am – 12 noon where we will be discussing our proposed new Diversity & Inclusion Commitment and what this means for your organisation.

At BITCI, we believe that addressing social inequality is an important driver for sustainable economic growth and recovery. We are aware of a rising prioritisation from members on diversity & inclusion. This is complemented by an increased focus from investors, as well as the next generation of talent to take a stand on inclusion. With this in mind, and given the current economic and social context, BITCI is proposing a public diversity & inclusion commitment for our members.

The webinar will introduce our vision for collective action. We will explore the rationale behind the commitment, the business case for signing up and we will provide detail on the ask of members. There will also be an opportunity to discuss in small groups the opportunities and challenges this commitment may present for your organisation.
