Walsall Workplace Diversity Conference
15 July, 09:30 – 13:30  

Over the past six months, businesses and employees across Walsall have been sharing their views on workplace diversity.   

The Walsall Workplace Diversity Conference will be the first place to hear the most recent local trends and analysis into workplace demographics and inclusion practices since the COVID-19 emergency began and the increased demand from customers, employees and stakeholders on businesses to do more.  

Walsall for All, DWP and the Black Country Chamber of Commerce are inviting businesses and their employees to join them at a virtual Conference this Spring which will share insights and findings of a research project carried out by the University of Wolverhampton and provide attendees with the latest insights and best practice around Diversity and Inclusion and how to develop initiatives for their organisation.


The Walsall Workplace Diversity Conference is free to attend and open to all businesses and their employees in the Walsall area. 

Why should you attend?  
There is huge potential and strength in businesses which are representative of the communities they serve, with businesses shifting away from ensuring they merely meet all legal requirements and are now actively striving to deliver meaningful inclusion and diversity throughout their culture, values and practices.  

Whether you are a business owner, director, have responsibility for your organisation’s diversity policies or simply want to discover practical takeaways on creating a more inclusive workplace, attendees will:  
  • Be the first to hear the most relevant local insights, trends and what matters most to Walsall businesses and those employed in Walsall  
  • Hear from speakers from different backgrounds and sectors about why diversity is good for businesses  
  • Meet with other businesses and discuss how to prioritise Diversity and Inclusion and consider next steps for their workplace

Agenda

Full details and speaker line-up will be published shortly. 

Hear the experiences of small and large businesses and how they focus on Diversity and Inclusion and the perspectives of individuals and other groups.  The event will also incorporate a workshop session for participants to explore and discuss the content presented at the conference and consider what support they might need for their business.
