What is National Inclusion Week?

Founded by Inclusive Employers, National Inclusion Week (NIW) is a week dedicated to celebrating inclusion and taking action to create inclusive workplaces, this year it takes place from 23rd – 29th September.

The theme for National Inclusion Week 2024 is ‘Impact Matters’, a call-to-action to everyone in your organisation, from leaders, to inclusion professionals through to teams and individuals.

Each one of us holds the potential to make a profound and positive impact.

‘Impact Matters’ has a powerful message that centres around understanding, identifying and measuring impact on marginalised groups and taking actions that make for genuine, sustainable change that matters.

National Inclusion Week has grown exponentially reaching thousands of organisations and millions on social media – we’re hoping to make 2024 our biggest and most impactful yet. Will you be celebrating with us?

For us, National Inclusion Week gave us the perfect springboard to move the conversation about D&I from being among an engaged few champions to a broader audience.

National Inclusion Week is a great opportunity to put inclusion on the table (even more so than it already is) for discussion and sparking thoughts and actions in others.”

National Inclusion Week gave us a great platform to bring lots of our inclusion activity and colleagues together in a unique way. The overwhelmingly positive feedback proved it was all worth it!

We hope to use the momentum to engage every employee so they understand the importance of inclusion and how they can make it an integral part of our culture.
