The SMP is committed to helping further build equity, diversity and inclusion in the bilateral relationship. We invite members, partners and all interested parties to join us for this free online event exploring diversity in the bilateral relationship, discussing who may be currently excluded and how we, as a community of actors, can help build inclusive working practices.

The workshop will hear and learn from leaders in the fields of equity, diversity and inclusivity.

Including issues of gender equality, race and ethnicity, disability and neuro diversity, the aim of the event will be to help raise awareness of opportunities to benefit from greater diversity in SMP members’ infrastructures, as well as looking at issues around unconscious bias. The event will also be enriched by Human Rights perspectives from Malawi.
