Fast Forward 15
This year long programme provides the opportunity for 15 women in events to be mentored and guided by an industry expert. Founded by Fay Sharpe in 2014 the programme aims to accelerate the careers of women and close the gender job title discrepancy in the events industry with the chance to attend group workshops, one to one mentoring sessions and a graduation ceremony.
Winning the hearts and minds.
To change behaviour.
Formerly One Industry One Voice, The Power of Events aims to demonstrate the scope and interconnectivity of the UK events industry both inwards and outwards to other forces.
With the launch of a engagement platform and research projects underway, take the opportunity to find out more about the goals and the steps being taken to showcase The Power of Events.
What is the Diversity Trail?
The Diversity Trail also exists to highlight the sector’s most inspiring exhibitors and recognise them for pushing the boundaries and moving the needle closer to a truly diverse and inclusive sector. The trail will connect suppliers and individuals with similar brand values and purpose, as well to support those that are just beginning their DEI journey
How does it work?
Pick up your card from the People & Culture Hub at the entrance, follow the Diversity Trail to collect stamps – you’ll find Diversity Ally accredited exhibitors by the sticker on their stand. For every completed card, International Confex will donate £20 to the REACH scholarship which aims to increase the representation of young people from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic backgrounds on Event Management degree programmes.
