Keynote: Choosing to Challenge: Reframing our way of thinking about Diversity and Inclusion

Monday, 08 March 2021
11:30 - 12:00 GMT
Included in the Rising Festival Ticket

In her speech, Julia Hoggett, an openly gay mother of two and the next CEO of the London Stock Exchange plc, will use stories from her career in the City of London to challenge us to reframe our traditional ways of thinking about the construct of the work place and how we make the ‘business case’ for diversity and inclusion. By unpicking the language we have used regarding role models, targets, meritocracy and privilege and the way we have traditionally made the case for more diverse and inclusive workplaces, she will seek to challenge some of the norms and indeed complacency that have contributed to the slow progress towards greater inclusion despite an increased focus and desire across many parts of society for change.
