Executive briefing - Leading diversity; making it happen
About the event
While the housing workforce is diverse, this is not reflected in our leadership. This briefing will outline why it is important to have a diverse leadership team and delve into the business benefits of embracing diversity. It will also provide an overview of the CIH 10 by 20 leadership challenge.
After the presentation Kate will welcome questions and discussion from the delegates. We’ll finish the briefing with a drinks reception and networking session where you can continue to discuss and debate with fellow professionals.
