We were delighted to welcome Fiona Daniel to participate in the Automotive 30% Club ‘Change the Game’ Conference on the 3rd & 4th of February.
Fiona shared great insight during her participation in the Masterclass session which focused on Promoting and Retaining Women and as part of the distinguished panel which answered delegates questions, during the last session of the conference.
Following the conference, a number of delegates have contacted us to find out more about Fiona and the work she does as CEO and Founder of FD2I. So we thought it would be great to profile Fiona in Inspiring E-Zine to spread the great work she is doing in the field of diversity and inclusion.
