EDI Big Conversation 2023 - Gender


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. 

Currently, the sector consists of a mainly female workforce. We want to consider all areas of gender, including how to create more diversity for genders, non-binary and what it means to be a gender different from what you were born as within the career development sector, and how the CDI and other agencies can create an inclusive culture. 

The workshop will be hosted by David Morgan, Chief Executive of 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.
