You are warmly invited to our autumn workshop and networking event, co-hosted by S.E.E.D. and BCS Entrepreneurs, at BCS Covent Garden.

By Digital we mean hardware, software, apps and behaviours enabling data-driven disciplines to improve the customer journey and experience! As digital permeates all areas of our lives, people without access to resources risk being left behind. This is where we come in.

Attendees will participate in dynamic workshop sessions, making for an energising and free-wheeling exchange to discover the challenges, from a grass roots perspective, of building and delivering a Digital Diversity & Inclusion programme. This will include the outcomes we should be driving towards and the programmes, partnerships and people that should either take the lead or encourage others to get involved.

Workshop Format:

Attendees will be divided into 6 workgroups (teams) to address the following subjects:

  • Gender
  • Race
  • Disability
  • Seniors
  • Kids & Youth

The teams will present their findings to the group, discuss common themes and recommend actions which could be included in our future activities.

This will be followed by a Panel Discussion, then networking over drinks and eats.

S.E.E.D. The Society for Entrepreneurial Education and Development:

This is a new charity, with the principal function of empowering disadvantaged communities through Education, Training, Mentorship and Workspace services and facilities. It aims to provide sustainable open access pathways to Entrepreneurial Resources and Mentorship, through the creation of a replicable innovation ecosystem.
