There are a number of risk areas that could be affected if firms do not consider and integrate EDI into their processes and risk management frameworks; increasingly there are reputational and financial risk if companies are not taking steps on EDI, as well as increasing potential to affect firms’ Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) too.
This Law Society webinar will provide advice and case studies on what small to medium firms can do to ensure compliance and progressive diversity and inclusion practices. The discussion will explore the importance of including EDI within risk management frameworks. It will consider: the legal risks and employee expectations around EDI; client demands for better EDI practice from firms and how it can help you get and retain business; and the importance of creating inclusive and supportive cultures for improved staff mental health and well-being, better decision-making and ethical conduct.
You will hear from a range of professionals in the sector to explore the full range of EDI topics and issues that firms need to consider in their risk frameworks and policy structures.
This event aims to address all elements that firms should consider in their planning and operations going forward to mainstream EDI as an important component in risk management.
The webinar will go live from 2.00pm – 3.00pm on Thursday 2 December 2021.
