What is a DLF event

The Digital Leadership Forum is a membership community of innovative digital leaders from leading brands including Barclays, Unilever, Intel, Lloyds Banking Group, Pfizer, Dell Technologies, GSK and Baker McKenzie. Each month we host interactive knowledge-sharing sessions for our members where you can share experiences and gain fresh insights to drive your digital transformation strategies.

What happened at the event

Our August session brought together our members who are actively involved in the D&I space to share success stories and debate how to turn D&I strategies into actions and measurable results. The panelists and speakers shared examples of the initiatives they’d be involved at PwC, Lloyds Banking Group, Legal and General and BNP Paribas so there was plenty of food for thought ready for the discussion groups. The panellist deep-dive groups were particularly popular, with members keen to hear more details on the various projects to help get fresh inspiration to shape their own strategies. We closed the session with members making a D&I pledge of one key action they could take to advance the D&I agenda in their organisation.

A key takeaway from the session is that D&I should be part of the wider innovation conversation and it needs to be treated like any other business area with targets set in order to get results.
