As the world rebuilds the new normal with careful consideration, uncover and learn how YOU can play an integral role in the repositioning & restructuring an INCLUSIVE Ecosystem. So, beyond the leadership statements, online discussions, and social media challenges, how do YOU actually advance towards diversity, equity, and inclusion? The active inclusion starts with YOU, on an individual level. If you’re not quite sure, how YOU can lead inclusion, join this event on 28 January, where you can expect to accelerate the conversation of Inclusion and Diversity and leverage the collective knowledge of leaders across the Brainport and beyond.
Brainport is quite diverse and is determined to build a strong, inclusive culture making sure it is attracting and retaining the very best talent and helping them and their families unlock their full potential. The event will give a great opportunity to engage in deep, meaningful conversations about diversity and inclusion in three specific tracks-
- Including (local) International Talent
Fostering a collaborative, supportive, and respectful environment that increases the participation and contribution of International Talent, making them feel belonged. Creating an inclusive work culture without barriers, discrimination, and biases.
- Including Family
Creating the right conditions and facilities to Include the family of the international knowledge worker to live, work and feel part of the Brainport region.
- Including Women
Gender equality is more than just whether companies have equal ratios of men and women, but whether women are involved in decision-making or hold positions of power and influence are especially important. It’s vital to consider whether women are not at the table, whether they feel welcome in work culture and if they’re subject to bias and stereotyping.
