Diversity Workshop

Date: 2.00pm – 6.00pm, Sunday 28 May 2023 (AEST).
Venue: ICC Sydney

episode 14: a twist to diversity and inclusion — inclusion in a hybrid work environment.

At the 2023 diversity workshop in Sydney, you'll have the opportunity to discuss, debate and action a variety of initiatives connected with diversity. 

This interactive session, both online and in-person, will enable you to discuss topics including:

  • The value of creating diverse teams
  • How to navigate diversity conversations
  • Tools to promote inclusiveness
  • Diversity of thought - what does it really mean?

Why is this workshop so valuable?:

  • Held during the 2023 International Congress of Actuaries, the workshop will be attended by a global, diverse group of actuaries — for the first time in five years. It will make for a rare workshop experience. 
  • You have the opportunity to interact at deeper levels around a variety of diversity and inclusion issues post-COVID-19.
  • You'll engage and learn from peers from around the world, with different locations and cultures.
  • You'll be able to develop and adopt new solutions and models for your own workplace, as business culture changes character and global business expands. 
  • You'll learn from a leading international panel of speakers, addressing topics like:
    What Diversity and Inclusion Programs Forget; How to create diverse, effective teams in a post-COVID world; and Talking the Talk and Walking the Walk: How to Communicate.

Come along, join in, share your experiences, explore ideas for change, and contribute to the new actuarial frontier. This workshop is available to all registrants of ICA2023, in-person or virtually.

Please note that separate registration for this workshop is required. Participants will be invited once registration is complete. Places are limited, so we recommend getting in early to avoid disappointment.
