INCLUSION IS EASY
For this talk Writer, Editor and Studio Resident Nikesh Shukla discusses Inclusion within the work place and why it doesn't and shouldn't be so hard for organisations to achieve.
One of the biggest things that organisations struggle with, in their efforts to diversify, is to identify how and where to spot talent pools that will offer diverse staff and artists. One of the biggest challenges to inclusion work is the feeling that it is hard. It isn't. The other biggest challenge to inclusion work is the belief that it has huge financial benefits to any organisation.
This talk will tell you how easy it is to be an inclusive organisation with an inclusive programme, how to find talent and why the societal benefit to inclusion work outweighs the financial rewards.
This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
