Intersectionality, age and religion

As part of our diversity and inclusion conference, in partnership with Leeds Law Society, we've launched three podcasts covering intersectionality, age, religion and belief.

We’re joined by expert speakers for an insightful discussion on these three areas of diversity and inclusion. We'll be talking through current challenges, and offering guidance to organisations and the profession on how to better support individuals and create more inclusive working environments.
