Is the job interview a barrier to achieving diversity in the workplace?

April 25 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In 2019 only the most backwards of companies remain unconvinced of the value of a truly diverse workforce. Now that many companies have embarked on the mission of recruiting and building diverse teams even those with the best intentions are discovering how extremely difficult and fraught with challenges their task is.

Join our panelists Pip Jamieson, Founder and CEO of The Dots, Meri Williams, CTO of Monzo, Jo Wickremasinghe, Product Director at Babylon Health and Dave Wascha, CPO of the Photobox Group and our moderator 10 Digital Ladies founder, business transformation consultant and coach, Lucia Adams for a candid and honest discussion about the challenges, mis-steps, pitfalls and travails facing companies and candidates as they try and create and realize the value of diversity in the workplace.

This will not be a discussion filled with platitudes but rather pragmatic examples of trying to get it right, but not always succeeding. Our hope is that we all walk away, whether we’re hiring or searching for a job, with practical strategies and tactics for making the journey a little bit easier for everyone.
