DIAN Global Link ‘Extraordinary’ Virtual Roundtable (North America)

12 November: 10:00 - 11:30am (UTC-5) | 7:00 - 8:30am (UTC-8)

As we bring this challenging year to a close, we invite you to join us for an ‘extraordinary’ Virtual Roundtable.  Hosted by our CEO, Peter Sargant, we’ll invite you to reflect on the past year from a D&I perspective and identify priorities for the year ahead. Specifically we’ll be asking you to share: 

  • What have we learnt about D&I in the past year – what has shifted? 
  • What are your D&I priorities for the year ahead? 
  • What one D&I resource would really help your strategy moving forward? 

Please feel free to share your ideas in advance by emailing Tina Arcilla.

This event is part of our special DIAN Week 2020 engaging your local teams.


This event is open to current DIAN Global Link representatives only. All attendees should register in advance by contacting our team.
