Analysis of Cultural Diversity in Different Countries Using Data Driven Methodologies

The concepts of diversity and mutuality remain difficult to define and are thus difficult to manage, improve or measure. As a result, the effects of a diverse workforce on improving business performance have been understudied and are not well understood outside of professional business contexts. This keynote aims to bring to light data driven solutions to this problem.

Improving racial and ethnic inclusion in a large health care organization

Inclusion when channelled and appreciated can bring new ideas and approaches. This is not about losing power. It's about making powerful changes. We can't avoid the debate, we still see glass ceilings for women, lack of access to service for people with disabilities, ongoing discrimination of people in the LBGTQ+ community and under representation of people of colour in senor positions.
