Leaders of industry came to Burnley College today to attend the latest conference staged by the Institute of Directors examining Diversity in the Boardroom.
Using the professional Lecture Theatre at the College's £100 million town centre Campus, delegates enjoyed a series of informative talks and presentations from Olive Strachan MBE, Director of OS Resources Ltd; Joanne Carlin, Director of People and Development at Daniel Thwaites plc; Noel Jolly, Head of People and Talent at BetterBathrooms.com and Leila McKenzie, Director of Leila McKenzie Associates.
In support of recently published data, the event explored why it is essential to encourage diversity in the boardroom, with the panel of
speakers sharing their personal and professional stories on the topic to provide key ‘takeaways’ for delegates.
There was the opportunity for networking among delegates and the event closed with a question-and-answer session.
