Offshore Wind Scotland welcomes all supply chain representatives to join this webinar session. Our panel will discuss diversity and inclusion for enhancing supply chain competitiveness in Offshore Wind.

Diversity and Inclusion are critical to the UK’s rapid expansion of its world-leading offshore wind sector. For supply chain companies it is pivotal for success, competitiveness and durability.

It is the responsibility of all companies to embrace and adopt practices which embed diversity and inclusion within their workforce. As a proven investment in a company’s success and a key driver of positive business performance, this webinar will discuss the experience of panellists in implementing change and the opportunity for supply chain growth.
