Origin Green Diversity and Inclusion Webinar in Partnership with AgDiF

The business case for balanced participation of women at management and senior level in businesses is well documented.  In addition building a diverse and inclusive company means that firms can draw from across the talent pool, attracting the skilled employees they need, supported by a strong employee brand and recruitment proposition.   Attracting and retaining women is key to that and business leaders are advised to identify what actions need to be taken at their company level to give them that competitive edge.   

Origin Green verified members are encouraged to include Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) targets under the social area of their sustainability plans. On the webinar, to support members to increase the number and ambition of their Diversity and Inclusion targets focusing on gender equality, Origin Green will release a new Diversity & Inclusion Guidance Document that has been developed by our D&I partners AgDiF (The Agri-Food Diversity and Inclusion Forum run by Bord Bia and Aon) and the 30% Club. This webinar will outline how to go about building a D&I strategy and detail the supports available to Origin Green members.
