Inclusive Companies 2018 Events

“My colleagues and I really enjoyed ourselves and met some lovely people – old friends and new! There was such a lovely atmosphere and it really helps to motivate and inspire us for the year ahead. I was touched to be shortlisted for the Diversity Champion Award alongside such passionate and dedicated colleagues. We were thrilled with our top 20 place on the Inclusive Employers list too – we’ve had a challenging year in the NHS and it is reassuring to know that we are still doing ok and up there with some of the best – we’ll keep at it!!

Emma Allen – 2018 Shortlisted Nominee | Diversity Champion Award for Public Sector

 “The event overall was fantastic with a great turnout too! It left me filled with inspiration and also an element of despair for the families who cannot access anything so if there is a way for us to accelerate any growth together do get in touch and maybe we could meet up and see if there are any areas where we can work together!

Well done to you and the team for pulling off such a great event and the other speakers were brilliant!”

Katie Parlett | CEO | Lighthouse Futures Trust

 “We didn’t formally have an introduction, I was very interested in the event as an Auto Trader employee and as a dad of an 18 year old son with a diagnosis of PDA (on the autistic spectrum).

I was blown away by all the speakers and at some points had to wipe away tears from my eyes as I felt a deep connection to what they were saying.

When I got home I discussed the day with my family and my son is now working on a video for ‘Autism’s Got Talent’.

I am really proud to hear what we are planning to do at Auto Trader to make our workplace more Autism friendly.”
