The Government – and the Prime Minister personally – has put transparency in equality and diversity centre-stage in its programme for this parliament.

2017 and 2018 will see 8,000 companies, along with 4,000 public sector organisations, preparing for the biggest step change in equality and diversity policy in a generation.

The full extent of the change, the new demands it places on companies and public organisations and the new scrutiny it will bring is still emerging and this event will provide a key milestone for organisations to compare their work.

Every company and organisation needs to be analysing not just their gender pay gap, but their social impact in relation to equality and inclusion – not just for their staff, but in their relationships with customers, clients and stakeholders too.

At GED 2017 we will provide the most up to date benchmarking for organisations preparing for the publication dates in 2018 and lessons from major organisations on how they have approached and prepared solutions to the issues thrown up.

GED 2017, in partnership with CMI and supported by E&Y National Equality Standard; Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion; WEConnect International and in partnership with the Noon Centre for Equality and Diversity in Business at UEL, will give you the tools you need to get up speed with, comply with, and manage the impact of government policy on your organisation.

Topics covered will include:

  • Case studies of ‘best practice’ publication
  • Lessons from the early stages of gender pay work
  • Presentation of diversity and equality data to staff
  • Benchmarking and presenting equality and diversity data for the public
  • Enacting action plans and programmes for improving equality and diversity metrics

All sectors, public and private, are coming under scrutiny, including the youth and male bias in new media and computing, the gender predominance of women in caring sectors, the gender predominance of men in finance and banking and the issues in education from primary to university.

All present different challenges and require different solutions.

Sectors examined will include:

  • Uniformed public services
  • New media and online
  • Care, social care and nursing
  • Higher education staffing
  • Hospitality
  • Finance and banking
  • Technology and telecoms
  • Manufacturing and transport

Different sectors present different challenges including gender and age profiles which will be challenged by transparency.
