Diversity and innovation: how a virtual meeting led to the launch of Reflect

Join us for a webinar where James Hewes, President and CEO of FIPP, and Nicola Murphy, CEO of the River Group of companies, will discuss the launch of Reflect, a not-for-profit focused on finding, developing, and managing diverse talent. 

The webinar takes place from 2-3 pm UK time on 20 October. It is free to attend. 

In this webinar, we will discuss: 

  • Diversity challenges and opportunities 
  • How you can innovate around diversity to broaden your talent pool 
  • What we can learn from the planning to launch of a diversity agency such as Reflect 

Background: 

Reflect “was born out of an innovation day we held virtually at River, when Covid was going on,” Murphy recently told FIPP. It “is a talent management agency to find budding influencers who are interesting and diverse.” 

It was set up as a not-for-profit, addressing a wide range of diversity issues. “We decided that not only would we set this up as a business, but also that any profits made would go into social mobility.” 

The aim is “that Reflect will make inclusive media, with the people behind it that are doing the writing, making videos, doing the food styling, etc. are also from those communities.”
