Mooen Ali’s wrote an excellent article on England’s Cricket World Cup triumph last week:

As Moeen Ali  highlights, the diversity of England’s cricket team was one of its’ strengths. The differences in culture and background of the players helped unite them, not divide them.

At Beacon Events, we are committed to diversity - we have 41 employees from 10 countries, of which 27 are female.  We are also committed to  promoting diversity at our events and ran a webinar on this last month

We are proud that Young Mining Professionals, Women in Mining, International Women in Mining are partners for this year’s Mines and Money event, excellent organisations that do a brilliant job at promoting diversity.

A few years ago, when I joined Mines and Money, only 5% of our speaker faculty was female. I’m delighted to say that this has changed.

At our Mines and Money London in November we already have a number of excellent female speakers confirmed, including to name just a few:

I am delighted that they are speaking at this year’s show.

Diversity makes us stronger not weaker.
