To celebrate National Inclusion Week 2021, we've been asking our colleagues what inclusion means to them.
Throughout the week we have been talking internally about inclusion, equality and belonging.
The theme for National Inclusion Week this year is #UnitedForInclusion, and coming together to film this video and talk about what unites us has been thought provoking plus a lot of fun.
It turns out, something that unites us is feeling utterly embarrassed as soon as the camera goes on!
Some companies have HR departments, Operations teams....
Our teams also came together for a quiz about inclusion and diversity, and we found out we that we have a very different set of teams! (A favourite = Weapons of Mass Construction!)
To take a serious note, our colleagues have learned a lot and a very big thank you goes to our EDI Manager, Shadei, for bringing everyone together and getting us #UnitedForInclusion.
This week we've had external speakers, conversations about allyship and an inclusion library. As an organisation we know we have more work to do to build a representative workforce and leadership, and to make sure we're being inclusive. #Learning will be a big part of this journey.
Some interesting facts we learned in our Inclusion Quiz...
Lastly, we have rounded off the week with an comment from one of our colleagues. We thought she was using a famous quote - but it's original!
