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.
