Lunch & Learn

We believe that fostering diversity and inclusion is not just a goal, but a journey we embark on together. Our Lunch and Learn sessions are designed to create an open and engaging space where we can explore, discuss, and learn about various aspects of diversity and inclusion. Through interactive sessions, thought-provoking discussions, and expert insights, we aim to cultivate a workplace culture that celebrates diversity, embraces inclusion, and promotes mutual respect.

Next session – Embracing Discomfort – 26th June 2024

Have you ever felt uneasy about certain aspects of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)? Are you willing to explore this discomfort and learn from it?

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in a thought-provoking and insightful conversation with Martin Brown, Head of Home Buying and Ownership at The Bank of Ireland and Suzanne Johnson-Smith, Head of Brand and Digital Marketing at Kensington Mortgages.

As they share experiences and their DEI journey, they’ll guide us through the challenges and opportunities of DEI discussions, helping us understand and navigate the complexities, even if we’re not DEI practitioners.

Embrace the discomfort and join us for this enriching Lunch & Learn session!

Want to get involved? The lunch and learn sessions are open to all. We will soon be publishing the calendar of upcoming sessions, with details on how to sign up – watch this space!
