EDI Big Conversation 2023 - Ethnicity


As a key input to developing the CDI’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy, we are running a series of workshops covering key diversity themes. Each workshop will include a keynote talk then discussions among participants to draw out the key barriers and issues affecting each community, as well as generating ideas for how the CDI can work to address them. 

This session covers all aspects of ethnicity, including cultural understanding, nuances, individualism vs collectivism, and why a greater understanding of ethnicity is required for our sector to become equitable and inclusive. We welcome attendees working in career development from diverse ethnic backgrounds, working with clients from diverse backgrounds or who are interested in this area of diversity. 

The workshop will be hosted by Ifza Shakoor, EDI Associate at the CDI along with the keynote speaker who is yet to be confirmed. The workshop is intended to be an open, participatory and engaging session to gain insight directly from people with lived experience. 

The workshop is free and open to anyone working in career development – whether a CDI member or not.
