TV presenter speaks at Princes Group Inclusion & Diversity Week

Television presenter Louise Minchin will be one of the guest speakers at Princes Group Inclusion & Diversity Week, which celebrates its third anniversary this year.

The former BBC Breakfast anchor will join Dr Helen Kini for a live Q&A on menopause awareness on October 20, titled The Power of Knowledge.

Louise will be speaking about the difficulties and symptoms she faced as she went through the menopause while Dr Kini will discuss ways to manage symptoms at work.

A second Q&A session on October 26, The Power of a Diverse Network, will mark Black History Month, and feature Sonia Bassey MBE, Chair of Mandela8, in conversation with Ben Osu, Senior Lead – Equity, Diversity & Inclusion for Everton Football Club.

Princes colleagues can join the live and interactive events from sites around the world or catch up on the recordings on demand.

Princes Group Inclusion Week is designed to celebrate everyday inclusion in all its forms. Now in its third year, the week brings colleagues together to celebrate, share and inspire inclusion practices.

Last year, a record number of Princes colleagues took part in the company’s Group Inclusion & Diversity Week. This year’s theme is ‘Time to Act: The Power of Now’.

Colleagues will again be encouraged to recognise fellow workers who have inspired or empowered them by submitting their nomination for the annual Pride in Princes Inclusion Award. The award is designed to recognise colleagues who go out of their way to put inclusion at the heart of everything they do.

Joe Dent, Chief People Officer of Princes, said: “This fun and informative event is fast becoming a highlight of our annual calendar and creates a regular and meaningful way for us to check and drive our Programme of Inclusion & Diversity across the business.

“I think it is especially important that we make time to connect and consider what steps we can take to help make sure colleagues feel listened to and understood.

“There are a number of ways that colleagues can get involved including joining our CRGs which support our accessibility, social mobility, LGBT+, gender diversity, multicultural and/or age diversity groups.”
