National Inclusion Week, running from September 27th-October 3rd 2021, was created by Inclusive Employers who organise the campaign each year. The week aims to raise awareness of inclusion in the workplace. Now in its ninth year, the 2021 theme for National Inclusion Week is United For Inclusion. It is about bringing people and organisations together to share learning and best practice so we can work together to reach our shared goal of making inclusion an everyday reality.
Last year over 2000 organisations took part in National Inclusion Week and the combined activities connected with over 16 million people using #NationalInclusionWeek2020 – this year our actions and activities will spread the message that we are all #UnitedForInclusion.
Amongst the activities CHS has planned for National Inclusion Week are team discussions where staff can share their own experiences and provide feedback on how CHS can become a more inclusive organisation for staff and customers. To help encourage staff to take part in the discussions, four of CHS Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Champions have shared their own experiences in this video https://youtu.be/XrzNZrK63VU
Staff will also be able to contribute to a CHS Shared Library of resource and recommend books, films, podcasts to colleague to help educate and inform.
