The concept of the first Global Inclusion Online Forum, which took place on September 3–10, 2020, was developed amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Initially planning for a local offline event on diversity & inclusion, CFC Big Ideas decided to take the initiative to the global level once the pandemic hit the planet.
The project was inspired by Anna Krys, CFC’s Business Development Manager and Head of Diversity & Inclusion, who had brought her expertise in diversity and inclusion from Ireland, where she worked prior to joining CFC for 4 years and implemented several award-winning D&I projects.
With 70+ speakers, 2000+ attendees, 11 panel discussions, startup pitch contest & online expo, and numerous workshops the Global Inclusion Online Forum became a monumental global DEI event of 2020. Following a successful launch, CFC Big Ideas team decided to hold it on an annual basis.
The second edition of the Global Inclusion Online Forum took place on May 20-27, 2021. It brought together 80+ speakers and 3000+ attendees.
Global Inclusion Online Forum is a connecting platform for more than 5000 DEI practitioners from different parts of the world! I am excited to continue sharing my expertise in joint efforts with CFC Big Ideas.
CFC Big Ideas aims to promote an inclusive culture for everyone by organizing Global Inclusion Online Forum. I am looking forward to seeing the platform grow, advancing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion practices!
CFC Big Idea’s Global Inclusion Online Forum is truly the World’s #1 Virtual Conference on DEI, the Speakers, Presenters and Thought Leaders are roped in from every corner of the world and from various walks of life. For the workshops I delivered at the forum, I was pleasantly surprised to have participants from 4 continents and 13 countries. It led to multiple strong leads and closed sales for my company, NeoSeven Solutions.
We enjoyed our insightful collaboration with CFC Big Ideas as the organizers of Global Inclusion Online Forum. We look forward to fostering further advancement of DEI practices in the corporate world with Global Online Inclusion Forum!
