FREE EVENT: Dealing with Discrimination

11:00 am
12:00 am

Many people in our network face constant rejection and discrimination from employment despite being ‘over qualified’ for many roles. 

In this session, we’ll hear your stories and coach and discuss how we can do things better. 

Often change is led by the people who experience it, and we’re calling on our members to understand the power and impact you can have. The blueprint for how we handle this isn’t clear but we do know that, collectively, we are stronger together.

Our aim for the session will be to:

  • Hear and meet each other
  • Coach and support each other over the stories we hear, and discuss what could be done differently
  • Leave with an idea for how you can manage things differently going forward
  • Question ‘norms’ and 'business as usual'
  • Think of how we create the world we want to see

We’ll have a highly experience MD and Executive Coach who is used to dealing at board level support the meeting.
