National Inclusion Week is an annual campaign run by Inclusive Employers to raise awareness of the importance of inclusion in the workplace and the business benefits to having a diverse and included workforce.
Inclusion is about making sure that people feel valued, respected, listened to and able to challenge. It’s about recognising and valuing the differences we each bring to the workplace and creating an environment where everyone has equal access to opportunities and resources and can contribute to the organisations success.

The 2017 theme
This year's theme is Connect for Inclusion.
Meeting people from different teams, other parts of our organisations, regions, countries, backgrounds and heritages enriches our thinking and our understanding of how we can be at our best for our organisations.
For National Inclusion Week 2017, we are asking everyone to step out of their familiar daily networks and meet other people; people who may say or do things in ways that are different to the way we say or do things, people who have had experiences unlike our own.
If we connect with other people, we’ll have an opportunity to gain new perspectives and ideas that may help us grow stronger and reshape how inclusive our organisations can be. As ever with National Inclusion Week, it's your call as to how you make this happen. A focus on reaching different colleagues, customers and communities may help you get things going. Give us a call on 020 7803 0689 if you want to discuss ideas.
