Webinar Discussion Topic:

We have seen a rapid growth in the number of DE&I roles being created here in Asia over the last twelve months. Stepping into a DE&I leadership role entails a huge responsibility and then comes the pressure to deliver significant impact on the organisations approach and understanding to this essential subject.

With DE&I being such a new position for many companies here in Asia employers have had to think differently about where they look for talent. We talk to DE&I leaders about how they moved into their roles and discover what they have learned about what skills and experiences are needed to be successful.

If you aspire to have a career in DE&I then join us for a Q&A session where you’ll be able to find out exactly what you need to do to achieve your goal.

- This session will be about exploring the key skills and experiences that will set D&I  people up for success

- The different backgrounds that can lead you to a D&I Role - it could be legal, human resources, business leadership or consulting but there are others

- The benefits and challenges of different backgrounds coming in to D&I roles

- What are the important transferrable skills needed to work in D&I?
