We have a duty beyond our pockets. Drawing on her extensive corporate and business career, Maggie will explore how having a strong purpose is good for business. She will look at the language of inclusion and encourage the audience to rethink some assumptions. The session will be interactive and engaging and participants will leave with a few tips for immediate action.
