A diversity & inclusion review for IP Inclusive EDI Charter signatories

Signing up to the IP Inclusive EDI Charter involves six D&I (diversity and inclusion)-related commitments. But it can be hard to decide how to target your resources on the D&I agenda, much less to create a coherent D&I strategy that’s properly aligned with your business objectives.

Working with Focal Point Training, we have created a tool to help our Charter signatories to review and benchmark their D&I credentials, to identify opportunities for improvement and to develop and prioritise future activities.

Steps to Inclusion is a facilitated review process based around the IP Inclusive EDI Charter commitments. It is:

  • simple and time-efficient
  • practical (specific actions you can take to get maximum impact out of the resources you have available for D&I)
  • tailored for your organisation (to take account of your size, current practice and D&I goals)
  • strategic and business-focused (allowing you to weave D&I into your overall commercial plans rather than pursue it as a stand-alone issue)

“We found the Steps to Inclusion Review to be a really helpful audit exercise to give us a focus for our D&I plan. It had a clear business focus and was tailored to give us highly practical short, medium and long term actions, which was particularly valuable”  – Sue Gregory, HR Manager, Haseltine Lake LLP

The cost of the review is, we believe, extremely competitive. The scope can be tailored for both small organisations (under 20 people) and larger ones.

The process is entirely confidential; Focal Point will not share any of your information with IP Inclusive or anyone else. It entails:

  • Completion of a self-assessment questionnaire on your current approach to D&I, with telephone support from a D&I expert at Focal Point.
  • An assessment by Focal Point based on your questionnaire return.
  • A tailored report with recommendations for development objectives over a sustained period of time. This report is debriefed in a phone call or face-to-face meeting.
