#1C1 - Mentoring and Inclusivity - Concrete ways to build an inclusive workplace

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Do you genuinely care about building an inclusive workplace, but feel unable to change the system? Do you care about diversity, but there isn’t a lot you can do on your own about representation or hiring within your organization? Do you want to be an ally, but don’t know how to be effective? Are you unsure how your intervention would be perceived? Having successfully improved diversity in your workplace, how would you give everyone a sense of belonging? Come along to this discussion, where we will discuss a few concrete actions that you can take, alone or with others, to build a more inclusive environment. We will illustrate the actions supported by anecdotal evidence and research.

This will be a discussion led by a panel consisting of representatives from academia and industry, covering a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. You can expect to take away actionable ideas to help you build an inclusive workplace.

Many academics improve the impact of the research by collaborating with NAG to get their algorithms into our library and in front of customers. The feedback from these customers can lead to new research questions. Also, Cloud computing!
