THE GG2 DIVERSITY CONFERENCE
We are hosts of the GG2 Diversity Conference and GG2 Leadership Awards, and creator of the GG2 Power List, celebrating the best of ethnic minority talent and thought-leadership.
The GG2 Leadership Awards were founded in 1988 by Asian Media Group, Britain's biggest Asian publishing house, to shine a spotlight on Britain’s most enterprising and talented black, Asian and minority ethnic high achievers. Today, it is the premier awards for inclusion, diversity and leadership in the UK, celebrating outstanding success across a range of sectors, including medicine, law, technology and within the community. The GG2 Power List, chronicling and profiling Britain’s 101 most influential Asians, is launched at the event, shedding light on the eclectic mix of talent within the Asian community.
Today diversity is very much a buzzword, but two decades ago, it was just a phrase barely uttered in boardrooms of the City or in the corridors of power in Whitehall. It’s been one of Asian Media Group’s primary missions to give a voice to ethnic communities, to showcase talent and to celebrate success. And the GG2 Leadership Awards has been doing just that for two decades.
The GG2 Diversity Conference, now in its fourth year, was launched to share crucial insights around diversity and inclusion in the workplace and society. The Conference brings together leaders, thinkers and diversity practitioners from a range of sectors and backgrounds to share practical advice, case studies and real-world experience to help organisations improve diversity and inclusion within their organisation. Each year, the Conference tackles a range of important topics, from mental health and LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace, to gender and ethnicity pay gaps. The GG2 Diversity Conference will also focus, this year, on why is it still hard to 'Empower For Change’ in the workplace and in businesses and increase diversity.
