- Time:12:00 - 14:00 PM
- Date:Thursday 19th April 2018
- Venue:Eversheds Sutherland, 1 Wood Street, London, EC2V 7WS
Join us for the Inclusion and Diversity Networking Lunch to discuss the opportunities and initiatives that will encourage greater diversity and social inclusion in the sourcing industry.
Equality is everyone's issue and we believe that a genuinely diverse talent base within sourcing contributes substantially to a strong and sustainable industry.
We are calling on both men and women to assist us in championing more diversity in senior leadership positions within the sourcing industry. It is essential to have better inclusion within the industry, pioneering practices and shaping the future of sourcing, shared services and global business services.
