Bianca Garcez

Chief of Staff, Strategic Projects Lead & programme Manager @ ESADE Business School

Bianca worked in big Consulting/Financial Services, heavily male-dominated environments. Both companies had their policies perfectly well written, HR and channels for complaints, D&I mandatory training, and constantly figuring out ‘best places to work’ lists, but the reality was very different from the formal layout.

She will be presenting: “Policy vs reality” which will highlight how companies with perfectly well-designed policies and training still fall for common D&I pitfalls and may actually have extremely non-inclusive environments.

His work is designed to help individuals and organisations make informed choices about the emerging future by working with drivers of future change to create ideas and plausible scenarios.
