Quo Vadis, 26-29 Dean Street London W1D 3LL
Full Price
£ 125

Hosted and curated by the BIMA Diversity Council, these private dinners are designed for board directors of digital agencies in the UK. We figured that, although we're sometimes in competition with each other, there's a lot we can gain by being better connected with each other, too. Just a group of 10 or so people with shared interests and challenges, having an off-the-record chat in a private dining room with some delicious food.

This BIMA Diversity Directors Dinner is a safe space for Business leaders to ask any questions they may have about diversity and inclusion from experts in the field. We'll follow strict Chatham House Rules and discussions can cover such topics as:

- What is Diversity?
- Why is there an increasing focus on Inclusion?
- What are the benefits of D&I?
- How can you implement a D&I strategy?
- What are the legal frameworks to be aware of?

If you feel D&I is important for your business but want some support in building your knowledge - then this is the dinner for you.

The details:

24 May, 7pm at Quo Vadis, Soho.
