-What is Novartis’s Talent vision, strategy, and value proposition?
-What are the goals, benefits, and cautions of using technology to achieve these objectives?

Q&A Panel Discussion


Networking and Refreshment Break


Interactive Workshop: Hiring and Promoting with Diversity in Mind

In this session, we’ll go beyond thinking of a diversity strategy as a box-ticking exercise to explore the real-life benefits to your business if it is implemented in the right way. Many companies complain they can’t find diverse staff. We’ll look at resourcing strategies that can help, but also how to benefit from those staff once they’ve been hired, and how you can empower and promote them within the organization, overcoming the obstacles. Participants will gain insights from short practical exercises, informed by Anne’s in-depth experience in this area as a senior manager in several organizations, including the BBC.
The session will cover: 
-Diversity friendly recruitment - getting rid of the barriers
-Unconscious bias within the organization - being well meaning is not enough!
-How to deal with any push back from existing staff
-Changing the leadership model to dispense with unhelpful stereotypes
-Empowering diverse people to unleash your company’s creativity
