At this event in collaboration with Refinitiv, we will launch our latest research looking at how the Covid crisis is catalysing a step change in diversity and inclusion across the financial services industry.

We will present the highlights of our findings, followed by a high-level panel discussion with:

  • David Craig, CEO, Refinitiv
  • Birgit Neu, Global head of diversity & inclusion, HSBC
  • Peter Horrell, Managing director, Fidelity International

The discussion will focus on five areas:

1.Increasing stakeholder pressure – From government, regulators, policymakers to investors, clients, customers and society;

2. The evolving role of the D&I function – How the pandemic has propelled the D&I agenda to the fore and more is being asked of D&I teams than ever before;

3. A forensic approach to diversity data – How organisations are using diversity data to better understand how Covid is impacting their employees;

4. Updating the business case for diversity – How D&I was central to business continuity plans through the crisis and is becoming integrated into the business operating model;

5. Shifting to an evidence-based approach for people decisions – The stage is set for new criteria for measuring and rewarding performance in a remote working world
