- Why is ethic, cultural and social and diversity important ?
- How does that translate into workplace? What is the importance of having BAME networks in the workplace?
- BAME networks need to have varied audience. In the same way gender conversations need to include men and get senior sponsorship, conversations on ethnicity and diversity need to have people from different backgrounds and ethnicities to make a difference.
- Call to action: What can we do to improve ethnic, cultural and social diversity.
