Forum for Leaders of Inclusive Cultures - The Impact of Discrimination and Exclusion

Discrimination and exclusion have a very real, multifaceted, and significant impact on employee’s health, wellbeing, and ability to perform at work. Research shows that these behaviours have impacts both physiologically (e.g., increased blood pressure, cortisol, and heart rate) and psychologically (e.g., speak up less, less decisive, less likely to share their needs and request help, reduced ability to set, persist with, and achieve goals).

How can employers combat discrimination and exclusion in their workplace, and promote positive cultures that support employee wellbeing and productivity? Join us for this free event where our panel will discuss these topics, their experiences, and the work of their organisations to build truly diverse and inclusive cultures.

CANCELLED: 'Argentina 1985' Movie Screening and Panel Discussion
OC1.01

Based on real events, the story follows the events surrounding the 1985 Trial of the Juntas, which prosecuted the ringleaders of Argentina's last civil-military dictatorship (1976–1983), and centers on the titanic work of a group of lawyers led by prosecutors Julio César Strassera and Luis Moreno Ocampo against those responsible for the most bloody dictatorship in the history of Argentina. The narration reflects on the true meaning in the concepts of memory, truth and justice under the slogan "Nunca Más" ('Never Again'). ' (Wikipedia 2022). The debate will be introduced by Dr Luis Moreno Ocampo (former Deputy Prosecutor of the Junta Trial and former Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court).
