Phaidon International Sponsors the National Diversity & Leadership Conference 2021

Posted: April 2021

Phaidon International is pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring the National Diversity & Leadership Conference 2021. This annual event which will take place virtually across April 21st – 22nd and April 28th – 29th, will feature internationally-renowned speakers who will bring their unique experiences integrating various diversity and inclusion topics in both personal and professional environments. From understanding how to be a better leader and creating a better workplace, to embracing Multiculturalism and Diversity, this conference is an incredible opportunity to network and learn from top leaders across a range of different industries.

"Now more than ever, we must not only support diversity and inclusion, but also be physically present and model inclusive behavior," comments Nesreen Ballut, Principal Consultant and Head of our Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Employee Forum. "We are eager to discuss challenges we all face within our organizations, how to better ourselves internally, and also what we can do to be part of the change externally throughout our recruitment efforts as a search firm. We look forward to show our organization’s strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion as well as learn from speakers/sponsors throughout the various discussions held."

Our sponsorship and participation in the conference reflects our commitment to moving the dial forward for diversity and inclusion at Phaidon International, and within our networks. Abigail Sawden, Regional HR Lead, comments, “Here at Phaidon, we are committed to driving Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion across three pillars: our own organization, clients and candidates we work with, and the communities in which we operate. We are very proud to sponsor the National Diversity & Leadership Conference. This demonstrates Phaidon International's wider commitment to ED&I as we continue to educate and engage our own employees whilst utilizing our unique position to influence hiring strategies of our clients and further drive ED&I both internally and externally."

In working with clients across key verticals within financial services, life sciences, end-to-end supply chain, technology, and engineering and infrastructure, we help solve the challenge of finding and securing top talent. We aim to be a trusted advisor in the efforts to create a more diverse workforce in all industries, and look forward to sharing our learnings from the conference with our partners.
