Breakfast briefing – Diversity, Equality and Inclusion


Less than 20% of the IT workforce, across all industries, are women. Black, Asian and minority ethnicities, and the LBGQ+ community are also under represented. A diverse workforce brings together different skills and approaches and will have a better understanding of the range of cultures and attitudes of our customers, be they students, staff or members of the public. So what can we do to encourage and foster a diverse workforce. At this breakfast briefing hear about approaches to attracting and retaining people from diverse backgrounds.


The briefing is being held in the Edinburgh Suite 2 at the Sheraton Hotel and we will be providing breakfast rolls and pastries with tea and coffee, fruit juice and water.


To allow us to gauge numbers please register your interest in attending
