Advice & guidance
Opportunity to ask questions in advance to ensure tailored support
Why is this so important?
A fair, equitable approach to diversity and inclusion is the right path, morally and ethically, and one that will benefit the charity sector and everyone it supports. There is also a strong business case for racial diversity: organisations with higher-than-average diversity have 19% higher innovation revenue than their competitors. Full Black, Asian and ethnic minority representation could be worth £24 billion annually to the UK economy. 75% of the workforce by 2025 will be made up of millennials who want to work for innovative and diverse organisations.
Who is it for?
- Anyone who works for a charity and feels they could benefit from advice and guidance on how to improve and strengthen inclusion in recruitment practice.
- Anyone looking for top tips on how to reach more racially diverse talent pools.
- Particularly good for hiring managers, HR departments, small/medium sized charities on a budget, CEOs and trustees. You will also learn how to put the ideas presented to you into action and build your own personal brand through content marketing.
