* Highly Recommended Seminar*

There are many links between the world of wine and a good strategy for diversity and inclusion in the workplace and society as a whole. Like labelling in society, people tend to make judgements about wines based on labels but in fact wine tasting requires us to notice characteristics and to reflect on our experience and this is exactly the same strategy that helps to encourage diversity and inclusion. By tasting 5 different wines, you will learn how to move beyond labels and relate this to diversity and inclusion both in the workplace and society as a whole.

Location: Bar Esquina 108 Upper Parliament Street, Nottingham NG1 6LF
Timings: Arrival from 5pm, training session 5:30-7, networking afterwards
Cost: £10.00 per ticket, food will be provided
