The NEW Kirklees Diversity, Equality and Innovation Conference and Awards Organised by the Kirklees Diversity = Innovation Network, Kirklees Council, KAL, Syngenta, Cummins and Haddletons will take place on Wednesday 21st September 2022.
Diversity is a key driver of innovation and is a critical component of being successful on a local, national and global scale. A diverse set of experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds is crucial to innovation and the development of new ideas, equality, and a sense of belonging whether that be in business or community setting.
The conference will be for those invested in Diversity, Equality and Innovation in organisations or the community,
with a focus on sharing ideas, best practise tools and resources.
The conference aims to support businesses and organisations to create a culture in which everyone,
regardless of their background, feels that they belong.
The awards, will aim to showcase the work of those who go above and beyond their social responsibility to
mirror the increasing diversity of the UK in their workforce. The awards will celebrate businesses and
organisations that see equality as more than just policies and practices, and is something that runs
throughout the very heart of what they do.
The event reflects the Kirklees Diversity = Innovation Networks commitment to driving forward and embedding positive change bringing diversity, equality and innovation to the next level for business and the community.
