Dive In Opening Event: Awareness to Action: The Ripple Effect
25 September, 08:30 - 10:00
Willis Towers Watson, 51 Lime Street, London, United Kingdom
We all have the power to make change happen. This year Dive In launches its new festival campaign ‘Awareness to Action” – reminding us that creating awareness of Diversity and Inclusion is simply not enough to drive change in our sector.
BBC Correspondent Frank Gardner moderates our 2018 opening event illustrating how it only takes one person to make a huge difference, with the realisation that even the smallest acts are one step closer to achieving change.
Our keynote speaker, Pam Warren, turned a disaster into a positive when in 1999 her life as a financial advisor was torn apart when she was critically injured in the Paddington Rail Crash. Pam’s injuries were so severe that she wasn’t expected to pull through. Not only did she pull through, she became the public face of the disaster – ‘the lady in the mask’ championing the cause of rail safety.
Frank will explore with Pam her experiences both in the city and leading a successful national campaign for rail safety, sharing her unique perspective on business as well as personal challenges and how to master them.
