Enabling innovation through diversity & inclusion.
On 9 October 2017, over 100 people from across the public and private sector held a Champions for Change conference to discuss how diversity & inclusion can enable transformation and innovation.
The conference began with a lively panel discussion moderated by Rachel Hugo (Sponsoring Partner for Women in Aerospace, Defence & Security, KPMG UK). Click here for a full list of our panellists.
The keynote was delivered by Edwina Dunn, co-founder of Dunnhumby.
Key takeaways from the conference:
There’s no ‘one size fits all’ for diversity
Diversity of talent enables a diversity of thinking and innovation
Improving access for women at every level
A ‘Street Fair’ then took clients on a career journey – from making investments in early careers through to Women in Engineering Communities and STEM, via mentoring and career transitions.

Rachel Hugo, Sponsoring Partner for KPMG’s Women in Aerospace, Defence & Security network said:
“Diversity and Inclusion is a critical agenda in Aerospace, Defence and Security and related sectors such as Technology, both in the private and public sphere. An inclusive and diverse workforce, free to focus on new thinking, is becoming increasingly seen as a key way of ensuring that organisations remain as innovative as possible and are able to transform. The fact that KPMG are facilitating this important discussion in this sector is something the firm can be proud of”.
