Description

The session will explore the central role of finance in creating high performing, inclusive and equitable cultures. The role of the finance function in supporting and enabling change is, though obvious, often undervalued. 

It will seek to increase the understanding and awareness of the ways in which finance leaders can more assertively play a strategic role in addressing issues to do with social justice, diversity, inclusion, and the overall culture of the organisation. 

Too often diversity is something that is tagged on to the main business of the organisation. This session will seek to show how it needs to be understood as being central and core to the very identity of the organisation and that what finance officers do and how they do it is critical to creating cultures in which everybody feels valued and a sense of membership.
