Striving to increase workplace diversity is a good business philosophy and having an effective board of directors is crucial to an organisation’s success. An organisation’s board members have a strong impact on how an organisation runs, making strategic decisions, and ultimately, on its success. Bringing in a range of perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences can be the key to success. We have assembled an amazing line up of speakers who are all advocates for the importance of diversity on boards and why more people should join boards.

Chaired by Tanya C Castell MBE, Founder of Changing the Chemistry, which promotes diversity of thought in the boardroom, she will be joined by Karthik Subramanya, Lisa Tennant, Silka Patel and Neil Stevenson. Join us and our incredible line up of speakers for a panel discussion in Glasgow to find out how you can diversify your board and propel your business to the next level at the same time.
