Global Equality & Diversity Conference

4TH ANNUAL GLOBAL EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY CONFERENCE & AWARDS
BUILDING GROWTH THROUGH INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY
THURSDAY 30 NOVEMBER 2017, LONDON

 
Early details regarding GED 2017: Building Growth through Inclusion and Diversity are now available here.
 
GED 2017, supported by E&Y National Equality Standard; Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion; WEConnect International and in partnership with the Noon Centre for Equality and Diversity in Business at UEL, will give you the tools you need to comply with, and manage the impact of, the government’s equality and diversity policy on your organisation.
 
All sectors, public and private, are coming under scrutiny, including the youth and male bias in new media and computing, the gender predominance of women in caring sectors, the gender predominance of men in finance and banking and the issues in education from primary to university. 
 
At GED 2017 we will provide the most up to date benchmarking for organisations preparing for the publication dates in 2018 and lessons from major companies on how they have approached and prepared solutions to the issues thrown up.
 
CALL FOR PAPERS
 
The Government has put transparency centre-stage in its programme for equality and diversity for this parliament.
 
Most companies are addressing this challenge, while other organisations are already advanced in their strategies and practices to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion in every aspect of their business.
 
Organisations in different sectors are often starting from different points to demonstrate progress to staff, stakeholders, clients and service users. On gender pay, organisations will be publishing one set of metrics in April 2018.
 
We want to hear from public and private organisations about best practice and examples of other metrics, methodologies and insights being used to address equality and diversity challenges.
 
We are seeking case studies, research work and examples of best practice and impact for presentation, particularly, but not exclusively, from the following sectors:

• New media and online organisations
• Social care and nursing
• Higher education
• Hospitality and tourism
• The legal profession
• Finance and banking
• Technology and telecoms
• Manufacturing and transport
• Uniformed public sector
