DIG Live 2021 Lo-res0144

Last year’s D&I in Grocery LIVE! event sold 1,300 tickets

GroceryAid has kicked off another year of its Diversity & Inclusion programme with a record 68 fmcg partners.

The charity’s 2022 programme, which involves shared learning, mentoring and a live event, will include the likes of Amazon, Tesco, Booths, John Lewis and Warburtons.

Over the course of 12 months, the partner companies will take part in a calendar of live webinars, as well as embarking on a mentoring programme with briefing and networking sessions.

That work will lead up to the D&I in Grocery LIVE! event on 21 October. More than 1,100 tickets have already been sold for the event at the Intercontinental London, The O2, which will be headlined by diversity and inclusion advocate Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson. The day will include keynote speakers, speed networking and Live Lab opportunities.

GroceryAid started its Diversity & Inclusion programme in 2020. Last year, it attracted 28 partners, all of which have signed up again for the 2022 initiative alongside 40 new partners.
