Together GROWiT and Anaplan will be sharing some of the key initiatives Anaplan put in place to on-board a more diverse range of talent.

Regardless of whether you are building a career in the commercial, technical or people side of the technology sector this event will add value.

Over the course of the evening we'll delve into the following topics:

  • Career planning and accelerating the achievement of goals
  • Developing your personal brand
  • Building a career in a male dominated industry
  • Diversity and inclusion best practices
  • And much more...
