During the session you will get a closer look at case examples, tips on building your communication, insights from our panel discussion, and take part in breakout discussions.


The panelists are 
-   Sarah Barron, SVP Talent Management, Vestas
-   Dennis Andersen, HR Director, Central & North Europe, KONE
-   Niels Fibæk, CEO and Co-founder, Matter
-   Thandi Dyani, Head of Partnerships, Girls Are Awesome

who will participate in a conversation with Lea Lønsted, Head of DEI Consulting from Mercer.

The topic

We will discuss the advantages of taking a more holistic approach and consider DEI as a whole - creating a fundamental change and embedding it into your company culture. What barriers are companies facing and how can you create an environment where you can


  • challenge existing assumptions and hypothesis
  • confront the myths of meritocracy
  • uproot the inherent privileges possessed by some employee groups
  • build strong, transparent and honest communication on DEI initiatives, progress and strategy

There is a call for more actively engaging with both internal and external stakeholders. Especially young(er) people are more critical when it comes to authentic communication and will expect companies to communicate progress – and not necessarily perfection. 

See you soon.
