About this event

Over the last year, organisations have faced many challenges due to the pandemic, with 48% of employees now working remotely or in a hybrid way. Many managers and leaders have had to transform in response to the challenges they have faced, which is crucial in ensuring the long-term effectiveness of organisations.

Following our successful introduction (The Fundamentals of Transformation), this is the second themed session in a series of events hosted by CMI’s East Midlands and Eastern board where we explore the topic of Transformation. The events focus on individual elements, highlighted in CMI's Management Transformed research, from communication, through to people and location.

In this session, we will explore some areas of EDI during periods of transformation, and why it is so important for managers and leaders to ensure they are building a safe, inclusive environment that allows all colleagues to thrive.

Join us on Wednesday 7th July when we are delighted to be joined by Tristan Canfer, Diagnostics Technician at Science Technology, Prospect Union Equality Rep, and UKRI Pride Network Chair, and Kenny Faulds, EDI Specialist, UK Research and Innovation, where our speakers will outline the importance of building effective EDI policies, practices, and cultures; embracing the full spectrum of diversity; and sharing some of their own experiences and tips for creating thriving and inclusive environments.

Free 1 Hour Webinar Nov 25th at 3.30pm - Sight Loss Needn't Mean Job Loss 

Every 6 minutes, someone in the UK starts to lose their sight. Visual Impairment is indiscriminate and can happen to anyone at any stage in their life so some of your employees or colleagues could be struggling with sight loss without you knowing.

They do their best to conceal the fact that they can’t see as well as they used to which often leads to anxiety, sickness absence, frustration and reduced performance.

With adjustments, assistive technology and the right support, employees with visual impairment can, and do, continue to work successfully.

The webinar will cover the challenges and solutions available to overcome them and is suitable for everyone working in Occupational Health, Health and Safety, Wellbeing at Work, HR and Management.

Places are limited so please please register now at:
