Campaign Leading Change Conference

When Leading Change was born in 2017, the objective was simple but the route to change remains a challenge today. For real diversity, we must continue to work at it, evaluate and scrutinise our progress, and encourage change at every roadblock. Are our workforces representative of the incredible diversity we have in this vibrant region? Is the media we put out, the creativity and the ideas, representing real people or falling into stereotyping tropes? Could we be doing more to create inclusive cultures to attract much-needed talent into the industry? And what does diversity look like in the new decade?

We must have open dialogue and hold each other to account in order to grow and prosper. Campaign Leading Change’s purpose is to offer this platform and to promote a healthy industry in Asia-Pacific.

This starts today, with new research, a refreshed Mandate for Change and a 12 month plan to help get APAC on the right track. We want you to join us on this journey.

Join us for a day of forward-looking discussions, practical exercises and networking with industry’s change champions. Whatever your position or discipline, change involves the whole industry so register your interest today to be part of the conversation on shaping a better future for talent.
