What's vital in a company's culture that fosters openness leading to innovation? Research has shown that universally, organizations who embrace 'Diversity' are more creative/innovative, perform better, and are more adaptable to change. With Chiang Mai's emerging multicultural business landscape, it is important for startups, SMEs, corporates, all business alike to leverage on such competencies.

In light of the Chiang Mai Pride parade on the same week, Chiang Mai Connect would like to bring to the table why you should care about 'Diversity' in the workplace. Join us for this special edition hosted at the newly launched location of Regus at Chiang Mai Icon Park!

  • Unlock opportunities fostering a creative / innovative environment for you and your team through 'Diversity' in the workplace
  • Connect with entrepreneurs & professionals from wide-ranging industries in the North - linking business groups from the international and local chambers of commerce, to the Federation of Thai Industries
  • Only 45 seats available for this special edition!
