Why You Should Attend

[Virtual+ Training Course] Workplace Equity and Diversity

While we know that creating true diversity of thought across an organisation can add value to the business, hiring for diversity must be done by breaking down conscious and unconscious biases – not by setting quotas. Companies that don’t make serious efforts are more likely to get punished, whether by losing key employees, missing out on capital from investors, being publicly shamed, or losing business.

This flagship marcus evans ’s 2 day master training on the new practices in Diversity will ensure you effectively address structural barriers, develop traction and increase the rate of structural change. You will learn how to harness the benefits of your diverse workforce to increase innovation, productivity and business performance.

Our Distinguished Trainer

Troy Roderick Independent Inclusion & Diversity Advisor

Director, Strategic Initiatives & Insights

Champions of Change Coalition

Previous Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion


Troy Roderick has specialised in Diversity & Inclusion for around 25 years. In his current ongoing engagements across business and government, Troy advises CEOs and other business leaders on key insights and trends in gender equality, intercultural diversity, inclusive leadership, flexible work, LGBT+ inclusion and all-scale, system-wide change to create more inclusive organisations, and customer and employee experiences.

Troy’s leadership of evidence-based, commercially-focused diversity and inclusion efforts impacts customer, community and employee-related objectives and includes his ground-breaking creation of “All Roles Flex”, and initiatives around inclusive leadership, gender equality, Indigenous  employment, and workplace responses to domestic and family violence. Troy’s work has achieved record levels of women’s representation in executive management, CEO leadership team and graduate cohorts; consistent increases in women’s recruitment, retention and representation, including in male-dominated businesses; D&I Index results scoring higher than any other element of employee engagement; a 300% increase in male leaders taking long parental leave; employee engagement of flexible workers at global high-performing norm levels; and increased employment across all diversity segments - Indigenous, disability, LGBT+ and other cultural and linguistic diversity.

Our Live+ Platform

Despite the current circumstances, we know your appetite for key business insights remains, so our Live+ digital platform enables you to fully participate in the event remotely. Of course it provides access to live online streams of all session, but much more than that it ensures you are able to engage with speakers directly allowing you to participate in Q&, relevant breakout groups as well as event polling and other insights and resources delivered during the event. We realise interacting with other delegates is key to your event experience, so our innovate online solution allows you to set up online meetings with other virtual and physical attendees throughout the event; ensuring you still walk away with those key contacts that can make a tangible difference to you and your business. The platform will continue to host all event content on-demand for you to revisit and continue to access for up to 6 months post event.
