Employability Summit

What does diversity mean and why is it so important for businesses?

A group of adults in a line look directly at the camera. They are each holding their CV in their hands. They get progressively more blurry as the line moves further away from the camera. Overlaid is the text "Employability Summit Event Series"

As part of our Employability Summit series, this webinar explored what diversity means, and the effective ways that employers can support diversity and inclusion within their workforces.

Bringing together job seekers, policy professionals, and employers, our participants discussed topics such as examples of recruitment practice that help to attract diverse talent, programmes that promote mentorship for social capital, as well as examples from businesses that are supporting diverse workforces and thinking.

Our panellists included:

  • Lily Satterthwaite, Co-Lead of the Global Technical Women Committee at Microsoft,
  • James Marsh, Human Resources and Learning and Development Manager at Planet Organic,
  • Filza Fawad, Project Manager for Catch22’s Inspiring Connections programme, and
  • a young person supported by Catch22’s Horizons programme
