The Stir

“The Stir” is BritishAmerican Business’ inclusion & diversity initiative. Launched in 2011, this critical program series has grown and evolved in response to the changing needs and themes within the transatlantic business community. In name, ‘the Stir’ acknowledges a shift from internal conversations siloed among female professionals, to a broader conversation for all to have around not only gender parity issues, but also diversity, inclusion and issues that impact minorities of all types.

In short, we are creating a stir: an open, honest conversation on how diversity & inclusion are not just good for business, but vital.

Together with our partners, BAB continues to remain vigilant in addressing these issues via a series of content-rich and community-building programs featuring the latest research, best practices, and real-world examples to make our case.
