Happening only in KL, Malaysia on 5 November. Register your seat early because you will be hearing top insights from C-suite and senior HR leaders from Dell, Digi, GoCar, IPG Mediabrands, Nestle, Tesco, Unilever and more.

Join Priya Veeriah and Talent Management Asia speaker Annie Lim, Global Lead, Diversity and Inclusion at Sanofi for a candid discussion on the five facts we all tend to overlook about D&I, her personal motto and more in this Faces of HR series.

“Diversity is inviting someone to the party; inclusion is actually inviting them to dance,” said diversity and inclusion (D&I) expert, Verna Myers.

What holds HR back from inviting others to dance? Annie Lim shares her responses below:

Q. What are the 5 commonly overlooked facts about D&I?

Fact #1: D&I is not about gender balance only.

Fact #2: D&I is not just a women issue. It recognises diversity at all levels.

Fact #3: D&I is not just about differences, it is the power of harnessing the differences for inclusion to thrive.

Fact #4: D&I cannot be a standalone initiative; it must be a truly global enterprise.

Fact #5: D&I is not just a fad or a HR process, it is business imperative and building a transformational culture.

“To shape the organisational culture and lead with respect and inclusion.”
