Registration for Convestival18 is now CLOSED!
So, what do we have in store for the most hotly-awaited event of the year?
With such an ambitious For Everyone vision we recognise that Convestival 17 was just the beginning. So, the focus this year will continue to be Diversity & Inclusion – Volunteering For Everyone.
The event will help you to inspire and engage others and identify and break down barriers to inclusion, so we can be truly relevant and welcoming to all. As one delegate last year put it: “What we should be aiming for is reaching the position where anyone can walk through the door and feel like they belong."
As you’d expect there will be lots of opportunity to share experiences, some key-note speakers to inspire and plenty of practical learning sessions too – all behind the beautiful backdrop of Calke Abbey, with the usual curious sheep and festival vibe!
As managers and leaders, you know you have a crucial role in making change happen. We also recognise this takes time, and it takes commitment over the long term. As you go through your normal PDP process I’d encourage you to talk to your own manager about the level of time dedicated to Diversity & Inclusion so everyone at Convestival is set up for success.
The energy and enthusiasm last year was genuinely amazing, and the feedback was so positive. So, what are you waiting for? Get registering and I hope to see you there!
