Hosted by: Bolu Faseun, UK DE&I Manager, PageGroup Having previously worked as a Recruitment Consultant across various industries, Bolu recently transitioned into a Diversity & Inclusion role. During her years as a recruiter, she encountered clients struggling to embed D&I in company values and candidates from minority backgrounds who were forced to seek new opportunities due to the challenges they faced in the workplace; which included discrimination in the recruitment process, being overlooked for promotion/pay rises, lack of training or support etc. In her current role as a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion lead, Bolu is able to be part of the driving force that ensures underrepresented groups are represented fairly in the recruitment process as well as helping organizations recognize the importance of a diverse and inclusive workforce.
