EDF Seminar 4: Discrimination in the Private Sector

This seminar considered what different measures might be introduced to promote equality in the private sector; whether current laws are effective in driving good practice and whether more positive incentives are needed to secure effective change management in this sector.

Speakers at the seminar were Caroline Waters from the BT Group and Victoria Secretan who works with the Corporate Responsibility Group.

The EDF would like to thank BT for providing the venue for this seminar.
