IoD Open House Road Show comes to East of England

IoD Open House Inclusive Business Road Show Comes to East of England in September 2019

Thought-leaders set the standards for the inclusive businesses of the future

Business is for everyone. Diverse companies do not just accept difference, they embrace it. When businesses include a diverse range of perspectives they can see more opportunities and innovate better than they ever have before. UK businesses have made strides in inclusivity, but there is much more work to be done.

The Institute of Directors (IoD) is delighted to bring its showpiece event for business leaders, IoD Open House on the road: Inclusive Business, to the East of England on 25 September 2019 at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford.
