Inclusive awareness within organisations is on the rise in the UK but creating a workplace that is truly inclusive and supportive of the needs of all staff at all levels is not always easy to achieve. For most organisations it can seem to be a moving target. Yet there are organisations that are managing to create a culture of inclusion more effectively than others.
In this webinar, we will explore the importance of having an inclusive strategy for your organisation that is relevant. We will also take a brief look at one of the main keys to maintaining relevance and effectiveness. Equity can be the turning point to bringing a higher level of understanding of inclusion and making its practice within an organisation appropriate.
Find out about how the new Inclusive Companies Consultancy is working with organisations to support their inclusive leadership strategy.
Facilitated by Sandra Pollock OBE and Paul Sesay.
