Diversity - beyond tokenism

Most of us understand the need to embrace diversity in the workplace but how do we turn ‘the right thing to do’ into a clear business advantage?

With increasing emphasis on inclusion there is a danger of the real value to be gained through diversity becoming lost in a tick-box exercise.

This session looks at how the different experiences and attitudes of a cognitively diverse team can create real benefits for businesses, colleagues and wider stakeholders. It will consider different management styles and how these impact on the ability to realise the potential of a truly inclusive culture; looking to the extent they encourage the free flow of, perhaps, conflicting opinions and ideas.

The Speaker:

Richard Ross has more than 20 years experience of advising growing companies. He is particularly interested in the way knowledge is shared and developed within businesses. Chadwicks were proud to be winners of the Knowledge Pioneers category in the 2018 Norfolk Business Awards

What people have to say about previous events....

The masterclass at Chadwicks, for me is a fantastic way to boost my knowledge in an important field which I often feel the effects from, yet seldom get to learn about. A wonderful setting at the enterprise centre, amongst like-minded company.

Beginning to plan seriously for retirement and being a relative newbie in Norwich, it was refreshing to be introduced to a firm that places great emphasis on technical analysis and thoughtful planning. Too often, in my experience, IFAs are more concerned with style over substance but Chadwicks, through their Masterclass sessions offer real insight into investment management and retirement planning. Whether as a professional adviser or, like myself, someone looking for genuine insight into the changing times of today, I would recommend the sessions wholeheartedly.
