Members United

Members United is an opportunity for members to come together, to connect and to share learning and best practice.

One way we will be making this a reality is by holding a series of round table discussions. These virtual roundtable discussions will provide an opportunity for members to have a dedicated space to focus on the bigger picture – to hear what other organisations in your industry, and beyond, are doing to make inclusion an everyday reality, and to share challenges and successes you have had along the way.

Setting the inclusion agenda

Member’s United round tables will each focus on a specific theme, which members have told us is particularly important to their inclusion agenda. We heard from you about what areas of inclusion are shaping your agenda, where are your challenges and success stories?

Our inclusion priorities

For our first series of Member’s United events in 2021, we asked members to vote on their top two inclusion priorities from a list of 10 inclusion topics. From this feedback, we established four topics to shape the subject of our Members United roundtable discussions.

The four topics we covered in 2021 were:

1) Changing behaviours and attitudes

2) How we collect and use Diversity Data

3) Active Bystanders to Allies – How do we encourage a culture of champions?

4) Developing a robust I&D Strategy

Inclusion topics for 2022

Our first Member’s United event this year is about global inclusion. It is for Inclusive Employers members whose operations are multi-national and who have activities in different countries. Learn more about the global inclusion event and register your interest.

How to be a part of the discussion

As we know everyone is super keen to connect over round tables, we will ask you to provide supporting evidence to determine the prioritised need of participation, or best practice that you have embedded that would be of value to others. Each round table will have 15 spaces, so, unfortunately, there won’t be room for everyone. However, we will ensure that each session is followed up with case studies, examples of discussions and top tips shared throughout for all members to access.

We will open up to receive registrations of interest for each event as they become available. A member of the team will get back to you as soon as possible with the outcome of your application.

Please note, all data collected will be used and stored in line with our Privacy policy.

Please don’t forget you can still send your members questions through to the Members Desk in the same way at [email protected]. We will be happy to connect you with anyone who comes forward in support of your request.

These sessions are designed to inspire thinking and to share ideas, but your membership account manager will always be able to help and advise on how suggestions may need to be tailored for your specific audience, different interventions work for different groups/teams/industries. The members’ desk will be happy to put you in touch at the email address above.
