On the 24th of September, we virtually conducted our Activate Change Conference. Nadim Zahawi, Minister for Business and Industry, kicked-off the conference with an inspirational keynote speech. We then had 3 outstanding break-out sessions, provided by Kerry North, Mona Vadher and Duncan Exley.
Our fellow speakers talked about and shared their insights on building active citizenship, demystifying social mobility and removing the non – educational barriers to recruitment. We finalised our event with a fruitful panel discussion. Max Commuzzi, our Director of Coaching, hosted Aden Eyob, Hannah Soar, Corrine Crosbourne, Emma Richards and Xingang Wang. Along with sharing their personal experiences, our panelists touched upon the importance of inclusive mindset and holistic approach, explained the relationship between neuroscience and inclusivity, and outlined how specific sectors/industries react upon the equality gap. We are honoured to have hosted such a powerful event where representatives from the government, industry and education gathered together.
