The program includes tracks for reporters at all levels of experience, and provides an opportunity for reporters to connect in an inclusive and inspiring setting. For example, there is a 2.5 hour Master Class 'Back to Basics' exclusively for New Reporters, which includes detailed information on using GRI Standards, Management Approach Disclosures, Materiality and Stakeholder Engagement. More seasoned reporters can dive deeper into advanced topics as e.g. Report Design and Audience Segmentation in a Communications Master Class. A variety of workshops will be available, providing you with expert reporting guidance on important topics such as the Sustainable Development Goals, reporting for investors, assurance, management disclosures, ratings & rankings, and issue specific reporting.

Learn more about the GRI Standards, including the recently updated Water & Effluents and OHS, and get a chance to meet with GRI staff from around the world, including GRI’s Chief Executive, the Head of the Regional Hub South Asia, our country manager in Peru and many experts from the GRI HQ in Amsterdam.
