The Global Inclusion Online Forum 2020

We are pleased to announce that Lisa Annese, the CEO of Diversity Council Australia, will be a keynote speaker at the Global Inclusion Online Forum from September 3-10th!

The Global Inclusion Online Forum is the first event of its scale in the online space to bring together worldwide leaders and experts on diversity and inclusion, HR consultants, business owners and top managers who want to make their organisation's more inclusive. The week-long event features two days of panel discussions, speeches and a startup competition, followed by six days of practical workshops.

“In the past, most international diversity and inclusion events have been exclusive premium gatherings of opinion leaders and leaders in the largest corporations. In light of recent developments in the United States, which have resonated around the world, more and more top executives are realising the need to spread knowledge about diversity and inclusion among all departments, divisions, offices and functional services of their corporations. Our forum should become a powerful platform for the world's best practitioners, which will allow them to effectively share their knowledge with the rest of the corporate world”, - said Konstantin Gridin, partner of CFC Big Ideas and organiser of the forum.

Speakers of the Forum are representatives of the world's largest organisations involved in the fight for human rights and diversity, including UN Women, United Nations Foundation, International Labor Organization, Human Rights Campaign, Women in Tech and Wikimedia. Several leading global corporations that have delegated their top leaders in diversity to speak at the forum: Amazon, Bloomberg LP, Danone, Deloitte, EY, IBM, IKEA group, Pfizer, SAP, Sodexo, Wipro and others.
