WorkPride 2023: Starting a Career in Diversity & Inclusion – Everything You Need to Know

Diversity & Inclusion has come a long way professionally in the last decade, and is set to grow considerably more by the end of the current. However, despite the rise of the industry and the increase in opportunities for marginalised communities and allies to promote diversity and inclusion, a lot of questions still remain as people weigh up taking the plunge and embarking on a new career. Our panel will feature D&I specialists sharing their thoughts, answering your questions, and exploring the things that you should be aware of before you start your journey towards helping to embed a culture of diversity and inclusion into peoples' lives.
