The Engage Webinars – What is Inclusion

These webinars are for your colleagues who may be at the start of their understanding on inclusion and haven’t been exposed to the opportunity of inclusion, yet. We will look at the foundations of inclusion and encourage colleagues to consider how they can think differently, value difference and play their role in building a more inclusive culture. The content of the four webinars is listed below.

What is Inclusion 1: An introduction to Equality, diversity and inclusion

Using case studies and examples we will explain the business case for inclusion and share best practice on how everyone can play their role in making inclusion an everyday reality in your business. We will also cover:

  • The Equality Act 2010;
  • Clarity on the differences between equality, diversity and inclusion.

What is Inclusion 2: Unconscious Bias

Bias inhibits decision making and results in unfairness and potential discrimination. Through case studies, evidence and reflection we will help delegates to understand their own unconscious biases and the impact that these may have at work. We also cover:

  • Institutionalised or systemic bias;
  • How to make changes that increase opportunities for all;
  • The relationship between unconscious bias and discrimination;
