ED&I Roundtable: The Relevance of an ED&I Strategy and How to Implement It

10 October, 2022

EMEA Recruitment were excited to host an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) Roundtable in partnership with Syngenta.

On Wednesday 19th October 2022, we hosted senior Human Resources and ED&I leaders in Zurich for a face-to-face Roundtable event.

We were pleased to be joined by Syngenta’s Group Head Diversity and Inclusion, Rubén Alejandro Ramirez, who was a recent guest on the EMEA Recruitment podcast: https://www.emearecruitment.com/podcasts/a-champion-of-dandi-ruben-alejandro-ramirez/204

In order to provide a safe space for attendees to discuss their ED&I journeys and to enable us to support leaders in their roles, we invited a select group from our network in Switzerland. We were proud to be bring together a vibrant group of professionals from a broad range of sectors, including financial services, chemicals, hospitality and pharmaceuticals.

Keely Straw, who leads our HR recruitment team in Switzerland, was the host for the Roundtable. She was joined by our Switzerland Country Director, John Byrne, and Senior Consultant, Charlotte Cruise, who has led a number of Women in Procurement initiatives in the past.

We explored the following topics:

  • Identifying your momentum and stage in your ED&I journey – identify different stages
  • How to design an ED&I global strategy – identify needs for each population and engaging that population
  • How to engage leaders and the employee community
  • How to identify and measure progress

We have received feedback from our network that there is a lack of this type of event taking place in Switzerland. We are proud to be leading the way in providing an opportunity for HR and ED&I leaders to discuss their journeys and network across different industries.

We enjoyed sharing the topics and ideas discussed at the event!
