    General Manager IT - Low Carbon Solutions


The only constant is change. Companies are constantly going through transformations, and it’s not always easy to accept and respond, either as an individual or company. That’s why strength, adaptability and innovative thinking are key attributes of a successful change. If companies harness their collective strengths and visibly prioritise diversity and inclusion alongside digitalisation, then they will attract the right talent to bring different perspectives to the table and inspire breakthrough ideas to complement transformations.

Laura explores why diversity and inclusivity are key values to uphold in all parts of a company, whether: departments, individual teams, local employee networks or on wider strategic scales, through personal stories and real-life examples from Shell’s own Powering Progress transformation journey.

Join Laura’s inspiring keynote for real-life examples and personal insights about how:

  • Innovative digital technologies are key to accelerating a company’s transformation
  • Creativity, inclusion and ethics play critical roles across organisations
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives can shape inclusive and accessible environments, unlocking problem-solving and innovation
