Inclusion and Diversity Strategy and Action Plan: Why You Need it 

Inclusion happens intentionally. Your organisation must have a clear plan, grounded in purpose and action and aligned to its HR, people plans, business strategy. Your inclusion strategy defines your vision for inclusion and diversity and is the foundation for building your inclusive workplace culture. It will enable you to develop a clear inclusion action plan that draws clear lines of accountability, which will mean you truly are making inclusion an everyday reality. Inclusion Employers are the inclusion experts to support you to make this happen.

Inclusion and Diversity Strategy and Action Plan: How it Works

We will conduct a robust consultation process in order to advise you most effectively on your inclusion and diversity strategy, which will include analysis of your diversity data. This consultation is key to understanding the challenges that your organisation may need to address and can uncover opportunities of inclusion that you may not be aware of. Most importantly, it brings in a wide range of stakeholders to the process, ensuring that your strategy and supporting action plan is authentic. Involving your stakeholders in this way creates a shared commitment across the organisation to own the actions that are needed to make inclusion an everyday reality in your organisation.
