The first MThree Diversity Network event of 2018 focused on celebrating difference and unearthing the transformative impact diverse teams have when working together to achieve a common goal.
The evening began with talks from 4 industry leaders who offered insight into what celebrating difference means to them through the lens of their professional experiences. Following the talks, the audience dug deeper into the panel’s opinions around diversity with a lively Q&A session.
To finish, we hosted a careers workshop, offering CV and interview tips to students and grads looking to get the edge in their careers.
