A little bit about CEOx1 day

CEOx1 day is a global event, connecting 350 CEOs from worldwide leading brands to the best talent from the best schools.

It’s important that we bridge the pay gap, increase mobility for all and increase diversity and inclusivity. These values are key to ceox1 day who are partnering with a wide range of charities.

Business leaders from ethnic minorities and with a disability taking part include Javed Khan, CEO of Barnardo’s, Pam Maynard, CEO of Avanade, a leading digital innovator, and Neil Heslop, CEO of Leonard Cheshire, who lost his sight when young.

“I am delighted to lend my support to initiatives like CEOx1Day, which I hope will help boardrooms represent the diversity of the modern world. We need more disabled leaders and there are still too many barriers preventing disabled people from rising to the most senior positions.” – Neil Heslop
