Inclusion and the benefit of diversity at work. How it works in Vietnam?

“We need diversity of thought in the world to face the new challenges” – Tim Berners-Lee

What does Diversity in workplace mean? How successful organizations embrace diversity and inclusion to strengthen their culture and reach higher success?

In this fast-pacing market, having and being able to manage diversity and inclusion in the workplace can add significant value to organizations. One of the great advantages is that you can tackle a problem from a rich variety of viewpoints while still having a united workforce regardless of their differences in terms of gender, nationality, race, age, education background, etc.

Therefore, we proudly introduce to you the topic of this breakfast seminar – “Inclusion and the benefit of diversity at work. How it works in Vietnam?”, co-hosted by AmCham HR Committee and EuroCham HR & Training Committee. Throughout this 2.5 hour session, different senior leaders in many industries will share with you their thoughts and experiences about the benefits of diversity, challenges that organizations can face when promoting diversity at the workplace and more.
