EEON Enabling Themes in Diversity and Inclusion Summit

Learn. Think. Do.

About the Summit

This year we are proud to be welcoming our keynote presenters Professor Calum Drummond, Duncan Smith, Fadzhi Whande, Donna Purcell and Karen Milward - see below to learn what they will be speaking about.

The 2018 Diversity and Inclusion Summit aims to bring together people who truly value diversity and inclusion as an essential part of their personal learning (and development) as well as contributing to their organisation’s success. Through a unique experiential format, (learn, think and do), the Summit will provide delegates a supportive environment to further develop their strategic thinking and practice.
