Harnessing the Power of Diversity

Diversity in the foodservice and hospitality industry means not just recognising differences but valuing them and understanding how these differences may impact the individual and the overall organisation. ‘Harnessing the Power of Diversity,’ from 1-5pm on Tuesday 20 September, will address the importance of diversity and why it matters. Our speakers will explore how a diverse and inclusive workforce can bring about positive change within a company and how different viewpoints and perspectives can build a strong and successful business enhancing performance and innovation.

Having a diverse and inclusive workforce with diverse thinking can be a key source of competitive advantage, and the surest route to reinvention and growth. Speaking at this event is Nick MacKenzie, CEO, Greene King Plc.  Nick will be joined by a number of foodservice and hospitality industry leaders including Raj Jones, Head of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Sodexo UK & Ireland in a panel discussion hosted by Joanna Aunon, Director, WiHTL.
