Event details:

Diversity For Business Success
In collaboration with Hundred Houses, Cambridge Network would like to invite you to an afternoon discussion on the theme of Diversity for Business Success. There is much evidence to suggest that a diverse workplace, reflecting all aspects of society, can bring numerous benefits not least an engaged and productive workforce.  We will look at the business case for promoting diversity in the workplace, and identify the opportunities for potential collaboration to support Cambridge's diverse business community.

This initial meeting will introduce two stories about increasing tolerance and appreciating diversity in very different organisations which we hope will spark debate and stimulate ideas for future events on these lines.

David is a Trustee of LGBT mental health and wellbeing charity ELOP, an alumnus of the Stonewall Leadership Programme and the Radius Business Network Leaders' programme.
