Celebrating 10 years of Inclusive Employers

We are celebrating 10 years of workplace inclusion in May!  We would like to celebrate by pushing forward with our mission to make every workplace an inclusive employer, where every colleague values differences and can contribute their skills and ideas fully to their organisation.

10th Birthday Programme of Events

We are using our 10th birthday as an occasion to take a look back at how workplace inclusion has progressed over the last 10 years; what we want to change today; plus a little look into the future to see what the next 10 years may look like.

This year we are developing an anti-racism in the workplace toolkit, which will be launched during National Inclusion Week. Anti-racism is a priority for us on our mission to make inclusion an everyday reality. The anniversary of George Floyd’s murder falls in the middle week of our event programme and it is imperative to us as an organisation that we mark this. You can find out more in the event timetable below.

We will also launch our first ever Inclusion and Diversity White Paper and a special 10th birthday edition podcast!

The past, the present and the future of workplace inclusion

When Inclusive Employers launched in 2011, ‘workplace inclusion’ wasn’t a phrase we heard very often. Many employers didn’t yet know what it meant and how it related to them and their employees. Our first members, TfL, Nomura, McDonalds, Hampshire Fire & Rescue and the Co-operative Group, worked with us to pave the way in those early days and are still trailblazing with us now.

Over the last 10 years a lot has changed. We now work with over 200 organisations to help them to make inclusion an everyday reality in their workplaces. Events over the last decade, and indeed over the last year, have brought inclusion sharply into focus for all of us.

We hope you will celebrate 10 years of inclusion with us by joining us on one or more of our events.
