About Event

Global and Regional Corporate leaders have come to realize that diversity and inclusion is a comprehensive strategy that has become part of the talent lifecycle of leading organizations to enhance employee engagement, improve brand, and drive performance and increase profitability.

Many large organizations now define themselves as global entities, making religious, gender, generational, and other types of diversity a business reality. However, successfully implementing D&I requires a strategic approach and long-term commitment. D&I is not an isolated initiative nor one from which we should expect a short-term result.

Join us in this summit to have meaningful discussions around; The current state of global diversity and inclusion in the corporate world; Importance and value of diversity and inclusion in business and Best practices and strategies to improve diversity and inclusion at the workplace.
