Passionate advocates of diversity
At the Innovation SuperNetwork we recognise that innovation happens when people from different backgrounds, and with different perspectives, come together.
In 2018 we launched our ‘Women in Innovation’ programme. With the help of funding from the Northstar Foundation, we worked with SME’s from across the region to deliver free, non-judgemental unconscious bias workshops as part of a wider peer-to-peer learning initiative to tackle gender bias in the workplace.
Since then we have listened to feedback from the programme and agree there is more work to be done in broadening the scope of the diversity conversations we have through our work on Unconscious Bias, tackling all systemic discrimination.
In line with this work, our commitment to diversity is also seen across the board at our events and in our business support programmes.
We make a continued effort to provide a platform for innovative people from all backgrounds. Our speakers, panellists, exhibitors and experts are from all sections of society and we are committed to addressing imbalance where we see it.
Additionally our Innovation Finance work is committed to redressing gender balance, improving the diversity of our angel investor network and the amount of investment into female and minority-led businesses.
There is a long way to go, but together we can make a difference.
