Opening keynote speech: What did you have to leave at the door in order to show up today?


Can diversity actually make a person lose their identity?  

Speaking from her personal experience, award-winning social entrepreneur, creative producer and founder of Sour Lemons, Sade Brown, explores how diversity can strip identity, and be damaging to both the individual and the organisation.  

How can you be your whole self at all times and not have to put on a new hat to walk into the office? How do you create inclusive work spaces that allow diversity to thrive?

Sade has been recognised by Natwest WISE100 as a Leading Woman in Social Business and a Diversity Trailblazer of The Future. In 2015, she received an award from Prince William for ‘Turning Her Life Around’.

Her organisation Sour Lemons addresses the lack of diversity in leadership within the creative, cultural and social sectors.
