Verna Myers said "Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusivity is being asked to dance". The discussion around diversity is one that has been ongoing for a number of years now, but recent studies show that this push for diversity targets simply isn't enough. To truly make the breakthrough for diversity, and to reap the benefits diversity brings, it is time to shift the focus of our discussions to inclusivity.

With remote working on the rise and its impact on mental health, this will become ever more important. It is important for us to see this as a way to pave opportunities for females, minorities and those with disabilities to gain more senior roles in the future, but we must also be wary of the challenges remote working will also bring to our mental health if inclusivity is not considered. 

  • Inclusion: what does it mean in practice and what strategies can you deploy to create an inclusive and collaborative culture?
  • How can you create inclusive environments through remote working?
  • Unlocking the opportunities to improve diversity
  • Supporting your team during these times: Effective strategies to support your teams mental health and creating a culture of 'togetherness'
