Santander International sponsor Jersey Diversity Network ‘The Surprising Power of Difference’.
The Diversity Network held its first event on 18 May 2018 which we were delighted to be sponsoring. Speakers at the event were; Philip Le Claire, Founding Chairman of Autism Jersey and currently Director of Operations, along with Karen Gallichan who is raising funds for an Autism bursary by swimming the channel in September.
Philip delivered a powerful and thought-provoking insight as to what it means to have Autism by asking the audience to engage in interactive exercises. Karen then gave an incredibly inspirational and emotional talk about the challenges she faced having a son with Autism and her reasons behind why she will be swimming the channel later this year.
The event also offered attendees the opportunity to network with others from the local business community.
