Quotas or Targets; How to Maximize Growth and Innovation

Event Date: 
14 December 2018
Parmelia Hilton
14 Mill Street

Research shows that there is a link between diversity and company financial performance. Therefore, the debate around quotas vs targets is more relevant and important now than ever, if organisations are to maintain a competitive edge over their competitors. A more diverse team allows for the traditional solutions to business problems to be challenged and redefined, and allow for more innovative solutions. Come along and listen to AmCham WA's diverse panel of experts on how to employ the best strategies of using quotas and targets to give that additional edge to your business.
