The Benefits of Building a Diverse Team

Thursday 27th June, Beyond Old Street, EC1V 9NR

We've exclusively collaborated with our sponsor, Sauced for our next event in June with an interactive panel discussion, where guest speakers will share their lived experiences.

Building a diverse team is essential for unlocking a company's full potential and achieve their financial goals. The benefit of building diverse teams includes fresh perspectives and bold ideas from employees who bring different experiences, backgrounds and viewpoints to come up with innovative ideas working together and drive a positive change within the organization. Employees are able to challenge themselves and their own beliefs by interacting with new people as they're building their skillset, enabling personal growth, fresh perspectives and greater cultural sensitivity. Teams who work together effectively toward common goals and support one another's efforts show collaboration, achieving higher levels of team success.

Hear from our speaker panel talk about how they achieved to build a diverse workforce, why they did it, and their takeaways for what it takes to promote diversity within their organisation.
