Uncomfortable conversations: diversity value-added in business

Diversity is a current topic in most dimensions nowadays (academic, political, social) and it could not be different in the business environment. Thus, many companies are investing in promoting diversity and inclusion among their employees.

In this event, an enriching debate will be held about work-related challenges and opportunities initiated by or related to diversity. We will count on the expertise and perspectives of IE alumni, representing different categories of diversity, that will help in understanding the crucial aspects of how companies can survive in current and future “diversity-demanding” business reality.

The debate will be mediated by Prof. Newton Campos, from IE University, which is one of the most diverse Universities in the world, bringing insights from the deep and fruitful connection between diversity and business.


This event will be held in Portuguese.
