Event details

We are pleased to invite you to the "UK – Norway DE&I in the Workplace Seminar 2023."

Our vision is that of an equal society in which all can participate, contribute, and live free and independent lives.

At present, many people around the world with disabilities encounter barriers that prevent equality. The objective of this seminar is to address these barriers at the workplace and to promote equality for everyone.

Our speakers and experts from international and Chinese companies will share their experiences and strategies. The sharing is not just theoretical, but all about practical solutions that can drive change within your organizations. We will look at policies and practices that can make a difference. We will also discuss social inclusion and how to create environments that enrich everyone's lives.

Join us for engaging discussions, network with like-minded individuals, and be part of a community that is driving positive change. Your presence matters, and together, we can create workplaces that are more inclusive and supportive of disabled employees.

The entry includes coffee, tea and snacks.
