  4. The discussion centered on the following topics:
  5. - Is there a business case for diversity and inclusion in the Philippines' workplaces? What are the benefits to a broadly inclusive workforce?
  6. - How are the Philippines' "millennial" generation changing the meaning of diversity and encouraging companies to rethink their inclusion policies? To what degree will non-inclusive environments restrict a company's ability to hire top domestic and foreign talent in the future?
  7. - What lessons have companies learned in creating inclusive workplaces for women, minorities, disabled workers and other marginalised groups? What policies and programmes have proved successful? How can these lessons be extended to the LGBT community?
  8. - Does responsibility lie solely with human resource managers and diversity and inclusion departments? What role must the chief executive and senior management play?
