NIW 2023: In-house Training | Packages and Bespoke

National Inclusion Week 2023 In-house Training

We offered the below packages for National Inclusion Week 2023. Expect to see the new round of packages in early 2024. You can register now to National Inclusion Week 2024, and be on the list to find out about these packages as they’re released.

The theme of NIW 2023 is ‘Take Action, Make Impact. It aims to inspire and encourage everyone to take action, big or small, to make positive impact for ourselves and everyone around us. We must all be a part of the change if we want to see real impact and progress. So, join us, and help us to make it the best one yet!

We are excited to be adding to our portfolio of informative and engaging in-house training packages for National Inclusion Week’s 11th anniversary!

We have designed a suite of NIW training for 2023 to create interest, raise awareness and inspire action that can be delivered virtually or in person, individually or as a package, by our expert inclusion consultant team.

These training webinars could be delivered during NIW or you could keep the conversation going within your organisation and schedule the training over several weeks or months – we can be flexible and are open to discussing your specific requirements. This year, we can also offer bespoke in-house training during National Inclusion Week – all delivered by our expert consultancy team.

What to expect from our inclusion webinar training packages:

Format: Webinars with interaction on Zoom polls, Chat Box, Slido and Mentimeter

Platform: Zoom, Teams, or your preferred platform

Number of attendees: Maximum of 300. We can also record the webinars so you can make them available to colleagues who could not attend.

Length of individual webinars: 1 hour

What content will be covered?

You can choose for us to deliver any Inclusion topic before, during or after National Inclusion Week. We can consult and design bespoke options for your organisation’s inclusion goals and journey.

We are pleased to offer curated webinars and in-person training with topics that resonate with this year’s National Inclusion Week theme. Combined with our National Inclusion Week toolkit, this in-house training is designed to amplify your participation in inclusion and make an impact within all areas of your business.

Take a look below at our recommended options for National Inclusion Week:

1. Take Action: to become an inclusion ally and create an inclusive environment for your colleagues

Everyone wants to be able to come to work and feel safe and included and as colleagues, we can make this a reality. By being inclusion allies to our co-workers, we can create a safe and welcoming environment for everyone and, by extension, for ourselves.

This allows all in the team to bring their authentic selves to work and be able to work to the best of their abilities. While leaders should role model this behaviour to embed in organisational culture, it’s the collective responsibility of all team members to ensure inclusion is a priority for all.

We will explore:

  • What does an inclusive environment look like?
  • What is an inclusion ally?
  • What actions can teams take to make a truly inclusive workplace for all?
  • How to unite teams to work together towards inclusion

2. Take Action: to deliver an inclusive customer or service user experience  

Many organisations have person-facing roles or departments, and whether this plays a big or smaller part in your organisation, it’s important to understand how to ensure those customers or service users have a truly inclusive experience when interacting with you and your colleagues. Those who use or buy our services are the core purpose of why some of our organisations exist, and we should all be taking
care to ensure they leave every interaction feeling safe and included.

We will explore:

  • Why it is important to ensure you are providing a safe and inclusive experience
  • What does this look like in practice?
  • What does the law say?
  • How can you continue to upskill yourself and others in the team to ensure you are continually learning and being as inclusive as possible

3. Take Action: to engage in inclusive communications in your workplace

Communication plays an essential and key role in our organisations. It is the way we share and transfer information and ideas, progress our work and include others. That’s why it is so important to have an awareness of and understand the way in which we communicate, the channels through which we communicate, what we communicate and our approach at all levels of the organisations and between all colleagues.

It’s vital to have awareness of different communication styles that exist in your organisation and beyond, and to have a shared understanding of what to expect so that there is clarity and inclusion for all.

We will explore:

  • What defines inclusive communication?
  • What can happen when there is poor inclusivity in communications
  • Why inclusive communication is important for everyone in the organisation to understand
  • Some ways in which we can improve inclusive communications in our organisations

4. Take Action: to prioritise mental health at work

Talking about mental health in the workplace has been taboo for so long, and even now, when it is raised, it can often be dismissed, deemed inappropriate or considered as something that the individual should deal with. But, the mental health of our teams is so essential to the functioning and success of our organisations.

If the mental health of our team is not supported, how can we expect people to work to the best of their abilities? As an organisation and a team of colleagues, there are many things we can do to support others’ mental health and wellbeing and this should be a priority.

We will explore:

  • Why it is so important for workplaces to support the mental health of their teams
  • What are the signs that someone is struggling with their mental health?
  • Workplace issues that can impact mental health
  • What can we do as individuals and organisations to support the mental health of our team?

5. Take Action: to challenge your unconscious bias

Whether we like it or not, we all have biases. It’s part of being a person raised in our current society. This is not inherently a bad thing, it’s simply a way for our brains to make sense of the world, however, this can be harmful when we judge a person or group of people purely based on these biases. Unconscious bias is our automatic response to a person and plays a huge role in how we interact with
and view others, and understanding our unconscious bias and challenging it can prevent us from furthering harm towards others.

We will explore:

  • What are biases and why do we have them?
  • What is unconscious bias and how does this reflect in our behaviour?
  • How do we challenge our unconscious bias?
  • What can we do as individuals and organisations to challenge unconscious bias

6. Take Action: to understand intersectionality and how this impacts your colleagues

Intersectionality is a tool we can use to help us to understand and empathise with our fellow colleagues and human beings; a lens through which we can begin to understand the experiences of others. It is about the overlapping and intersecting identities that we all have, it allows people to be seen as the three dimensional beings we are, considering all the elements which impact our lives all at once, not issue by issue.

Understanding those in your organisation through the intersectionality of their identity and experiences is how we can begin to address inequality and inequity and progress towards a fairer society.

We will explore:

  • Definition of the word intersectionality and its roots
  • Why it is important to think about colleagues through an intersectional lens
  • What results can you expect to see when you take an intersectional approach?
  • What can we do as individuals and organisations to embed an intersectional approach?

7. Take Action to engage global colleagues

Employees can be separated by thousands of miles and spread across several time zones, which in itself is tricky, but to grow inclusion across cultural and legal differences presents particular challenges. The risks of getting it wrong can be enough to make employers give up on a global Inclusion and Diversity agenda but the benefits are substantial if you are able to flex your approach.

We support organisations to leverage the huge benefits that a globally inclusive strategy can provide, such as enhanced innovation, performance, psychological safety and connections at the individual, team, and organisational level. What works in the UK isn’t necessarily going to work globally, so our method is
focussed on taking a practical approach to global inclusion.

We will explore:

  • Why inclusion in a global context is so important
  • The inclusion challenges and opportunities faced by global organisations and colleagues
  • Ways to start and maintain global inclusion in your workplace as an individual and as a team
