Digital Workshop- The 3 under-utilised tools for progressing and retaining diverse talent – 9 June

Connectr’s interactive Lunch & Learn Workshop is curated for those within the Financial and Professional Services Sector and will uncover 3 under-utilised tools that your organisation can use to drive progression and retention of your brilliant diverse talent.

There is currently severe lack of equal progression opportunity within the sector for underrepresented talent groups. Those from lower socio-economic groups take 25% longer to progress, despite no evidence of poorer performance. For individuals who also identify as being from Black heritage, this increases to a shocking 32%.

This reality needs to be addressed. Join industry experts, Damien Shieber, Head of Culture & Experience at Santander and Richard Rowntree, Managing Director at Paragon Bank, to explore the key tools to drive equal progression for ‘unlocked’ talent groups within the UK’s Financial and Professional Services. Connectr will also share how your organisation can join the new industry membership body for boosting diversity in the sector, launching on 20th May.
