THE DIVERSITY DIGEST

The Diversity Digest is a platform for all issues of Diversity and Inclusion to be highlighted.

Our aim is to have fresh and informative content that will inform, engage and challenge our readership. We will bring together all the relevant issues of the day across UK workplaces, government policy, legislation, best practice and innovation as well as continuously highlighting the benefits that Diversity and Inclusion brings to UK plc. We will also look to you, the readership, to help inform and influence us on the narrative and future content development. You are therefore warmly invited to offer feedback, comments, articles, opinions pieces and tell us of the great work you are doing in your workplace.
