This episode is part of our Lesson for Leaders series, and looks at diversity and inclusivity, trust and reputation. During Blue Door Expo 2020, we brought together a panel of leaders to explore the corporate responsibility of every organisation to not only be fair and trustworthy, but to create an environment where every employee feels comfortable to be their whole selves, as well as providing representation and support to the communities they serve and are a part of.
