POSTPONED – unfortunately this webinar will be postponed to a later date yet to be confirmed.

The Covid Business Series: What works for work has been co-developed and delivered by KTN and the ESRC. It aims to bring together industry leaders and practitioners with researchers and academics to discuss emerging procedures, policies, tools, and tactics for a variety of business workplaces; and provide employers and employees with actionable insights that attendees can use at work.

In this session, we’ll be exploring inclusive working environments with our expert panel, including practical steps that organisations and individuals can take to turn theory into reality.
