    This free Zoom meeting is available to Fellows only to attend.

    Inclusion drives business performance. But most organisations are failing to see the full benefits because they rely on piecemeal inclusion efforts and inadequate understanding and measurement. Alison and Rebekah will set out their bold and comprehensive approach to generate better results and impact for organisations, their stakeholder relationships, and the communities in which they operate, showing how everyone is responsible for making inclusion happen.

    There will be ample time for Q&A and discussion about the lessons for procurement leaders and professionals and how they can use inclusive processes and actions for better business outcomes.

    Please join from 16:45 UK time, starting at 17:00.
