It’s been a few months since that hugely powerful session at this year’s PraxisAuril Conference when we gave the prime plenary slot on the final day over to a discussion on Diversity in KE. It was a real privilege to Chair a session in which four brilliant speakers spoke so candidly from the heart about their own experiences - and which then quickly developed into one of the most fast and furious Zoom chats I’ve ever experienced, with a very large audience participating enthusiastically in the discussion! [You can still watch that recording HERE]. Such energy from PraxisAuril members and the KE sector at large to get involved and support the EDI agenda - truly inspiring.
