RIDI Conference 17th October 2017

As a Silver Partner of the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative, RIDI, we are delighted to announce their first half-day conference, Creating Disability Confident Recruiters through Collaboration, will take place on 17 October 2017. The event will be hosted by the Headline Sponsor Eversheds Sutherland at their prestigious offices in London. Please see attached conference flyer for further details of location and time. As a proud supporter of RIDI, we know how much you, as our partners, value and support our goal of breaking down the barriers facing disabled people in the recruitment industry.

We are thrilled that multiple Paralympic gold medallist Sophie Christiansen CBE will be one of the guest speakers at the conference. Sophie is a British dressage rider who has competed in four successive Paralympic Games and is currently an eight-time Paralympic champion and has multiple World and European titles. She recently came fifth in the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year after a very successful year for British sport. Sophie will be sharing her story – Don’t Miss Out On Talent – about her experience of going through the recruitment process after leaving university with a First Class Masters degree in mathematics. In addition to Sophie, Penny Mordaunt MP, the Minister of State for Disabled People, Health and Work will also be speaking as will members of the RIDI Executive Team and past RIDI awards winners.

We know that this conference will be an unmissable opportunity for you to actively participate, listen and learn from our inspirational speakers. There will be lots of interaction on the day including a panel discussion and a chance to be a part of setting RIDI’s priorities for 2018. Take the next step and join us on Tuesday 17 October for a conference designed with you in mind. Book your tickets now as there are a limited number of places available.
