Impact Events and Roundtables
As we approach the beginning of Spring, we are reflecting on the
'Future Proofing Talent through Diversity' events that Impact have
We are passionate advocates for Inclusivity within the media and
creative landscape and have created opportunities for our clients
to network with their peers and discuss important and key
topics. Bringing insights from talented individuals, these
sessions have provided beneficial content and take away thoughts
for everyone to take back into their organisation.
Our recent HR and talent groups have discussed Neurodiversity
when we heard from Jennie Childs, Interim Director of Talent, Group
M and Roxy Hobbs at The Hobbs consultancy;
where both shared their insight into making sure Neurodiversity is
on everyone's agenda
We were joined by Noa Burger, a specialist trainer in Workplace
Wellbeing and Mental Health for a session discussing how mental
health is affecting the workplace, the importance of raising
awareness and we shared practical insights and tips on what else
can be done to improve mental health at work.
Our most recent session looked at how to attract a more diverse
talent pool, more specifically BAME and we were joined by
Sandra Kerr OBE, Race Equality Director, Business in the
Community. We explored ways of recruiting diverse talents (by
race) and the challenges in retaining BAME talent.
In April, we are joined by Liz Nottingham, Executive HR
Director, R/GA in hosting a session for senior industry EAs on
Managing Millennials and increasing your internal profile.
We are currently planning an event on Women in Tech for Q2 and
will be sharing details in the coming weeks. For those keen
to get involved as contributors we'd love to hear from you.
