About the webinar

 

Practical advice for executing core DEI strategies in 2022.

 

As financial institutions prepare their hiring and human resources strategies for 2022, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) considerations will be integral to their planning. Research commissioned by eFinancialCareers found that 70% of professionals in the finance sector believe DEI policies are important when deciding where to work.

 

In this webinar, Sasha Scott, CEO of DEI consultancy Inclusive Group, offers practical solutions to some of the key DEI pain points faced by recruiters and HR professionals in financial services. 

Sasha, who is a former director at UBS, will share advice about:

  • Bias and brain systems: how to be aware of the risks bias poses to our decision making, and how to avoid common pitfalls 
  • Inclusive language: what this means, and how to create inclusive dialogue
  • Mentoring for diversity and inclusion: how to implement alternative mentoring formats
  • Employee networks: how to make them inclusive and intersectional
  • Diversity in the boardroom: how to support senior leaders in role modelling inclusive organisations
