Equality, Inclusion, and Diversity are key themes in graduate recruitment and many organisations recognise that having a diverse workforce that reflects the community makes good sense. Many companies find they have under representation in their workforce from people from specific groups.
and Employability Service are running an event for Black Minority Ethnic (BME) students to raise awareness of positive employers who want to invest in students from a diverse background and to raise awareness of the range of BME diversity programmes available to students. The focus of the session is around why diversity is important to employers and we have invited speakers which include South Yorkshire Police, Irwin Mitchell, and Enterprise Rent a Car, to tell us why diversity matters to them.
There will be an opportunity to chat informally to the speakers over light refreshments.
Also in attendance will be BME representatives from the Students' Union.
Location: Careers and Employability Centre, City Campus
