The Black Lives Matters Movement has thrust diversity and inclusion back into a global news agenda. But how do we turn good thoughts and intentions into real change?

With the hosting help of Award Winning TV and Radio Presenter, Juliette Foster , our Speakers Corner Connects Showcase: Diversity & Inclusion 2.0 Virtual Masterclass had Member of Parliament for Tottenham and the Shadow Justice Secretary  David Lammy  start with a powerful story about his own experiences and how allyship and positive leadership can transform the future of business.

Following David was organisational psychologist, Chartered Scientist, author, and CEO John Amaechi  who shared the science of change, how leaders can create truly inclusive workplaces and how we can incorporate diversity and inclusion into the duty of care we owe our employees.

Our Q&A had Juliette pose questions from our audience including how businesses can implement practical tools to combat unconcious bias, how SMEs can create diverse workplaces and the importance of having uncomfortable conversations which lead to meaningful change.

After our showcase Shappi Khorsandi  shared her own story and the diversity issues within entertainment industry and how non-white artists are being treated as anomalies.

Speakers Corner Connects Showcase Series  has been curated to show event organisers how the power of the spoken word can be delivered via a virtual platform during social distancing measures. It’s never been more important to be inspired by some of the greatest humans to have walked this planet.
