The Broker Club is pleased to announce a Media Partnership with City & Financial Global for its upcoming next edition of the Ethnic Diversity and Inclusion in the Financial Services Summit, which will be held in central London on Wednesday 27th September 2023.

 

Vivienne Artz OBE, Advisory Board Member and Past President, Women in Banking and Finance, NED, Chair, Advisor to Boards, and CEO, will be chairing the event.

 

The programme will focus on the latest results and conclusions of the Parker Review and Race at Work Charter; the challenge of getting ethnic diversity right at all levels in the hybrid working environment and effectively encouraging businesses to do things differently. Why is being “ethnically diverse” good for business? What should the UK government’s role be in monitoring racial inclusion and diversity in the sector and how should it use its powers to accelerate change?

 

This in-person conference will feature insightful presentations from and informed debate between, senior experts and government representatives on the following key topics.

 

KEY TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED:

  • Moving the dial on ethnic diversity & inclusion in financial services: the regulator’s role
  • Latest update on the Parker Review – new targets to improve ethnic diversity of FTSE 350 senior management teams and large private businesses
  • Ethnically diverse – what does it actually mean? What are we doing to achieve ethnic diversity and inclusion in the current hybrid working environment, and is it working?
  • Latest update on Race at Work Charter
  • Why is being “ethnically diverse” good for business?
  • What is stopping us from recruiting ethnically diverse people and why can’t we keep them? Using data to explore cultural barriers to ethnic diversity and accelerate ethnic inclusion in financial services
  • Ethnic diversity and inclusion in the banking, insurance, professional services, and asset management sectors – What have we learnt so far and what could we do better?
  • Black women in business – “Let’s talk about race in the workplace”
  • Getting better at having hard conversations and the importance of an intersectional approach in attracting and keeping an ethnically diverse workforce. The future framework in the financial and professional services industry – how can we make it up to the younger generation?
