There has been an increasing focus on DEI over the past few years. A big push has been made by businesses, schools, universities and those within them to be more inclusive. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is high on the agenda of corporations, governments and society around the globe. Targets are being set, action is being called for and accountability is increasing.
Many have now been part of or listened to discussions on gender, race, neurodiversity, and sexuality and we have seen actions being taken.
These discussions have certainly made a difference for many, yet a large population of professionals have been marginalised and left out of such discussions due to another bias which has negatively impacted them globally. A bias that is so ingrained that it is viewed as acceptable, despite it having major implications for a group who are majority women.
During this session, Simone will unpack the ongoing impact of this bias and highlight what is needed, why it is needed and how we can influence change to protect the future of the profession.
