BAG ACC Virtual Global Business Summit- Experience & Inclusivity: Developing the Airport Environment- *Register Now*

The British Aviation Group and Airport Consultants Council (ACC) look forward to hosting the BAG ACC Virtual Global Business Summit tomorrow and are delighted to introduce our panellists at the BAG Global Business Summit next week:

Traditionally, BAG and ACC come together once a year to deliver a Global Business Summit. This year we are happy to announce we are delivering two virtual sessions. On 11 February 2021 we hosted Part 1 of the series looking at Recovery and the Climate Challenge - Securing our License to Grow, with guest speakers from ACI World, IATA and the FAA. You can find the recording here:
Part 2 of the BAG ACC Global Summit 2021 will be held on 24 June 2021, and will focus on the opportunities for developing the airport environment for the benefit of both travellers and the many other users that occupy the airport space.

The session will be arranged around the themes of: Re-Start; Innovation; Inclusivity. Starting with Re-Start and increasing passenger numbers, the session will examine how new processes and procedures in the short term can be managed to maintain an acceptable environment. Progressing to the medium term, we will review the potential of innovation for improving the experience for all airport users in a positive and inclusive way.
Please book your space through the BAG website so we can circulate the relevant dial-in details to you.

BAG Virtual Get Together- Lunch and Learn: Inclusion and Diversity – ‘The journey to inclusion’ in partnership with WDI Consulting  *Register Now*  

BAG recognises that a diverse and inclusive workforce in the broadest sense leads to more holistic decision making, increased innovation, higher performance, and importantly greater employee engagement. The BAG Board are committed to the agenda and we are working hard to listen and learn from others to ensure we raise standards and achieve common goals across the industry.
BAG have partnered with WDI Consulting who are supporting the Board on our inclusion journey. We are delighted to invite Clare Russell and Lynn White from WDI Consulting who will share with our members some best practice and practical tips on how businesses can best foster an inclusive culture. 
We will also be joined by Heathrow Airport explaining why diverse and inclusive suppliers and partners are important to their business and one of our members Ocean 3D who will share the inclusion work they have been doing in aviation both in the UK & USA.
The workshop will also provide an opportunity for BAG members to meet the BAG Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Group: Louise Houston (Chair), Jacqui Johnson, Furah Naeem and Tim Walder. Jacqui Johnson will facilitate an interactive session and will provide an overview of BAG’s journey in D&I so far. There will be opportunity for Q&A with all our speakers and we will invite you, our members to share your thoughts, ideas and suggestions on D&I at BAG.

Thursday 1 July 2021, 13.30 – 14.30- Register on the BAG website to receive dial in details. Please forward this invite to anyone in your business who would find this event useful!

It was a  powerful learning opportunity to educate and challenge ourselves to improve our organisational culture and ways of working. We are committed to creating an inclusive and diverse environment and as such are starting with educating ourselves first to better support our members in their journeys through sharing best practice and promoting excellency across the industry. We look forward to sharing more insights from our journey.
