BCCI President, Steven Sprague is pleased to invite you to the Chamber’s annual BCCI GALA DINNER 2022 on Thursday 28th September at the magnificient Chiostri di Sant’Eustorgio in Milan. The Chamber’s Annual Gala Dinner is, for the second year running, unlike any other. After last year’s successful Sustanability theme, this year we are celebrating Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I).
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I)
Diversity is the presence of differences within a given setting. Equity is the process of ensuring that processes and programs are impartial, fair and provide equal possible outcomes for every individual. Inclusion is the practice of ensuring that people feel a sense of belonging in the workplace.
