Over the last year Inclusive Boards has been delivering diversity initiatives to support over 140 Sport National Governing Bodies (NGBs) and organisations with efforts to improve diversity at board level. We are now very excited to be launching a special webinar series starting in mid-October and FREE for anyone to join.
Each week we will be speaking with experts on a specific diversity strand and participants will be able to ask questions and hear about best practice when seeking to improve their diversity at board level. The webinar series has been designed with the feedback given us on where sport bodies require extra help and support.
They will be led by experts speaking from professional and personal perspectives, relevant to the sport sector, interactive and will provide you with examples that can be implemented as part of the diversity action planning process’. All webinars will be during lunchtime (1pm) which means all board members and senior leaders will be able to benefit from wherever they are.
