Data is crucial to the development of an effective strategy to improve equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace – if you don’t know where there is under-representation, you won’t know where action needs to be targeted.
That said, the collection and processing of diversity information are strictly regulated under data protection law and must therefore be carefully thought out and executed to minimise legal risk. If a business gets this wrong, the exposure can be great, no matter how admirable its aims.
This webinar, hosted by Bird&Bird, will cover several facets of diversity monitoring and data collection in the UK, from the policy to the law, including some key questions and issues, as well as a panel discussion bringing together industry experts to explore these topics further.
What we'll be covering:
- Policy: why is data relevant to forming an organisation's equality, diversity and inclusivity agenda and policy?
- Law: how can employers collect and use data, taking into account legal obligations that differ greatly across the globe?
- Implementation: once data has been collected lawfully, how do you go about successfully implementing a diversity program? What are the consequences of getting it wrong?
For the panel discussion, we are delighted to say that the experienced practitioners from Bird & Bird will be joined by Claire England, Director of D&I UK at JLL, Paul Modu, Surveyor at Knight Frank and Graham Stokes, Senior People Manager at The Crown Estate.
We hope you are able to join us. For any enquiries please contact: Ellie Verrall on +44 (0)20 7415 6033 or click here
