Why do we need a diversity and inclusion strategy?
The Festival of Marketing is proud to work with industries that recognise and actively address diversity and inclusion challenges both in the workplace and through their own output. We encourage our partners to discuss and help resolve these challenges within our content, with past sessions confronting approaches to gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and age.
But while we are discussing these issues, our speaker profiles are not yet truly representative of all the different groups of individuals that make up our society. As a result, we are making diversity and inclusion a priority for 2017 and beyond to provide our audiences with wider-ranging perspectives and further improved content quality.
We might not get everything right first time around but the only way we can move towards a more diverse Festival is if we recognise our mistakes and correct them as we go. We hope you’ll bear with us and offer us help along the way.
