''Words for Boys and Girls''
Andrew has over 20 years of experience in marketing services and recruitment communications. He’ll be taking an in-depth look into whether the language used in recruitment really affects the gender balance of applications. Following a recent undergraduate survey, Andrew has gathered some interesting results which show there may be more to this debate than we first thought.

Making disability a student recruitment priority today
Despite progress in society, disabled people are underrepresented in the workplace. This session will raise awareness of the disability employment gap and the need for student employers to take positive action. It will showcase the trailblazing work that GSK is doing by promoting behavioural change and establishing disability confidence as a global priority for student recruitment.
Fantastic range of content, from insight and benchmarking to practical examples of challenges and potential solutions. So glad to took the time out to come!
Really useful & informative presentations with lots of suggestions to implement in the business.
Great session - so important to educate on diversity issues before change can be made.
I thought the presentations were really good quality and presenters had some interesting data to show.
