Diversity and inclusion is something we are all aware is vital to a successful organisation, yet up to half of us (according to a recent ACCA survey) are not sure what we need to do to support the D&I agenda, whilst nearly three-quarters of us think we are a diverse profession.

To help members appreciate the valuable role they can play in this movement, ACCA’s latest CPD e-learning, Diversity and inclusion: working together, helps to define what it means and how to identify strategies for you and your organisation. The CPD course is also based on the recent Professional Insights report, Leading inclusion.

Join this webinar to meet our panel of experts to find out more; ask them your questions about implementing D&I strategies in your workplaces, and they will answer them in the webinar. Develop your understanding and appreciate how you can make the profession more equitable.
