Diversity and Inclusion event

BS 76005 launch - Valuing people through diversity and inclusion – Code of practice

4 May 2017

Venue: Manchester Museum

BS 76005 launch - Diversity and inclusion

Together with the University of Manchester, we are launching BS 76005:2017 Valuing people through diversity and inclusion – Code of practice on 4 May 2017, at the Manchester Museum. 

Diversity and inclusion have become key management topics now that we recognize the opportunities arising from for a diverse and inclusive workforce.

To help organizations embed these attributes we have developed a new British standard that aims to maximize the contribution of human capital.

BS 76005:2017 Valuing people through diversity and inclusion – Code of practice provides both a framework for valuing people (it is based on the framework for valuing people BS 76000), and recommendations for influencing, engaging and aligning diversity and inclusion expectations. 

The event will be of interest for anyone in HR, management consultancy or management who’s interested in diversity and inclusion, as well as anyone in a diversity or inclusion role within the company. 

BS 76005:2017 is part of the 76000 series on human resources standards. BS 76000 – Valuing people –  Management system – Requirements and guidance provides a framework for organizations to value people, for the mutual benefit of both parties. 

We sincerely hope that you can join us on the day to enjoy our speakers.
