National Inclusion Week runs from 27 September to 3 October 2021 and is a time – for employers and employees alike – to think about the inclusivity of our workplaces. Not that that shouldn’t be happening all the time, and especially during this difficult period as we emerge from the Covid-19 restrictions, but it helps to have something to focus on.
The campaign is organised by Inclusive Employers, a membership organisation established to help employers create inclusive workplaces. In a blog post here, available on their website, they tell us more about #NationalInclusionWeek 2021, its theme this year of #UnitedForInclusion and how you can get involved. There will be free resources and events to inspire inclusion in your workplace before, during and after the week itself. Please do take a look well beforehand, and make use of this tremendous opportunity to improve inclusivity for your teams!
