‘Inclusive and diverse’ workforce theme revealed for active-net 2019

Next year's active-net conference will explore the benefits of having an inclusive and diverse workforce.

The two-day conference will feature a panel session and a number of breakout workshops discussing the topic of diversified workforces.

The main panel session, titled ‘An inclusive and diverse workforce – ensuring we maximise the talent available’, will be chaired by Andy Reed, director at The Sports Think Tank. It will include a number of industry experts – including Sandra Dodd, CEO, Places for People Leisure: David Stalker, former ukactive CEO and current CEO of Oxygen Free Jumping; and Arun Kang, CEO of Sporting Equals.

“The leisure sector needs to ensure its workforce is both inclusive and diverse," said David Monkhouse, organiser of the active-net event.

"Promoting and supporting diversity in the workplace is important for both good people management and business – it’s about valuing everyone in the organisation as an individual.

"However, to reap the rewards of a diverse workforce it’s essential to have an inclusive environment where all are valued and able to realise their potential.”

Active-net 2019 – which will be in its sixth year – will take place on 27-28 March at Eastwood Hall in Nottingham.
