Diversity and Inclusion at the Microlise Conference

On 16 May 2019 Microlise held its annual transport conference and awards attended by over 1000 delegates. It was once again hosted by Quentin Wilson and included a host of speakers from throughout the industry speaking on subjects such as vehicle emissions and clean air zones, preventing HGV related terrorism, the rise of electric vehicles, platooning and the Brexet debate.

Lesley O’Brien held a workshop creating a case for diversity and inclusion in the workplace, arguing that every effort to address the skills shortage and attract people to our industry would be pointless if the transport industry failed to embrace a more diverse and inclusive workforce which was representative of the community in which we all live.

After the workshop, Lesley was interviewed by Emma Shone of Commercial Motor https://youtu.be/Nuj-k1dmiU4

Lesley will be speaking again at a She’s RHA event being hosted by Autotrader in Manchester on 26 June. The event is for both men and women, so please come along.
