Speakers share their responses to this question from Bea Udeh:

Thinking creatively, but essentially, if this session was a part of your nutritious everyday diet which vitamin, fruit or veg would it be and why - or what function or benefit does your 'session' provide to you, your organisation OR your audience?

"Exploring the cultural differences and perceptions of mental health is not something we talk openly about.   Breaking the stigma - it is in our control.  In our organisations we can create  a cultivating  environment – where we can support."

"Melbourne Museum is an apple, an Anglo centric organisation, with traditions at its core.  I'm a pineapple, a non-Anglo addition to the table.  I see my role as supporting the constant exploration and access to the State collection that belongs to the people. "


Head and shoulders Andy Boreham Andy Boreham. Head of Marketing at Bristol Beacon and AMA board member.

" I like the idea of a conscious attention to EDI as part of daily practice and routine, so IA Day and its outcomes would have to be most akin to my morning glass of orange juice – it’s a conscious choice at the start of each day to get a vitalising hit of vitamins and  goodness for the benefit of long term health. I like to think of this in the same way. I want to leave delegates with a tangible next step – the spark of an idea to put into action.2
