Breakout Session 5: Leadership & Workforce

The workshop showcased examples of good practice in how through supporting and developing a more diverse workforce and ensuring effective learning and development we can promote the duties. It provided opportunities for delegates to consider the role of leadership in taking forward this agenda.
