There is an increasing call for business to play a bigger role in creating a more inclusive, fair economy. For that to happen, leaders first need to address the prejudices and inequalities that persist in their own organisations.
In the words of Justice Edward Cameron: "Diversity and inclusion are more pressing than ever. Racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of fear and hatred are not isolated; they remain embedded and they demand courageous, deliberate work."
Nene Molefi, the author of the new book: A Journey of Diversity & Inclusion in South Africa, and a carefully selected panel of executives will address:
- The role of business leaders in creating a more inclusive culture.
- The tangible benefits of a more diverse and inclusive organisation.
- How to identify and overcome discrimination at all levels in the organisation.
- The importance of establishing executive groups that are more representative of society in terms of race and gender.
- Nene Molefi, the author of the new book: A Journey of Diversity & Inclusion in South Africa;
Justice Edwin Cameron;
Dr Jonathan Broomberg, CEO, Discovery Health;
Bongani Nqwababa, Joint President & Chief Executive Officer, Sasol Limited; and
