During the Year, MCA member firms have explored many diversity and inclusion challenges. We have shared insights. Together, we have developed tools and techniques to improve the performance of member firms.
But there is a long way to go. As the recent President’s Club scandal shows, corporate Britain still has much to learn about talking the talk and walking the walk on diversity.
For this reason, the MCA’s efforts will not stop. This event signals the end of our Year of Diversity. But it is only the start of our campaigning.
At this event, held in partnership with BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, one of the most stalwart supporters of the Year of Diversity, we will both recap and look forward. Our expert panel will discuss what we have learned to date from our events and initiatives. Most importantly there will be breakout sessions to consider the future. We want to develop an MCA Year of Diversity legacy. This might be a declaration on diversity and inclusion to which all MCA member firms are committed. We will also build on our Year of Diversity pledges. Delegates will be encouraged to discuss and debate how our consultants can set a great example to corporate Britain, through personal undertakings and active promotion of diversity and inclusion.
And there will be an interactive session with real-world examples of anti-diverse behaviour by clients and colleagues. Participants will discuss how they would handle those situations and call out bad practices.
