Working with Searchlight and UKGI's HR consultants, The MGAA has recently enhanced its Membership Benefits proposition by launching a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) training programme for all MGAA members which includes access to bi-monthly training webinars, podcasts and articles led by Holly Mapstone, an experienced financial services human resources and DE&I specialist.
"One of our key motivations in introducing this programme as a membership benefit was to provide a much deeper and broader opportunity for members to both validate and introduce new DE&I learnings into their businesses. The webinar schedule and supporting collateral provide so much more intrinsic value than a traditional DE&I overview in ensuring your business has inclusivity at the heart of what it does." - Julia Coakley, The MGAA
"The first webinar is aimed at Senior Leaders and Managers, and will provide an opportunity to learn about what diversity, equity and inclusion actually is, and explore how members can start to implement positive and proportionate change into their business. We will also look at the risks/pitfalls that can occur when businesses are not proactive in making these changes, and how that can affect your HR team.
This will lead nicely onto a discussion around the importance of DE&I, and why it matters to your business, and how it can develop and harness your overall strategy and goals, which will translate to future growth. Finally, we will discuss the connection between practical steps and your business culture and look to create a high-level plan for how to get started with these new initiatives." - Holly Mapstone, UKGI HR Consultant.
Members of the MGAA will find details of the programme on the MGAA website.
