SGI has announced that it will be taking part in National Inclusion Week 2020.
National Inclusion Week, running from September 28th-October 4th 2020, was created by Inclusive Employers and aims to raise awareness of inclusion in the workplace. Now in its eight year, the 2020 theme for National Inclusion Week is Each One Reach One. It is about bringing people and organisations together to connect and inspire each other to make inclusion an everyday reality. Together, we will build the biggest inclusion chain ever.
Amongst the activities SGI has planned for National Inclusion Week are a panel event, podcast series, workshop interview – more details to follow for all.
“SGI’s participation in National Inclusion Week 2020 is an exciting step of progress towards fully recognising and adopting inclusivity in the workplace. SGI are passionate about forming conversations and carrying out meaningful actions, towards building inclusive working environments.”
Richard McKenna, Managing Director, Inclusive Employers, said: “It’s fantastic to see that SGI is joining employers up and down the country by taking part in National Inclusion Week 2020. This shows that they take building inclusive workplaces seriously and I welcome their commitment to do so. I’m really excited to see how they use National Inclusion Week as a force for change and celebration and hope others will be inspired to follow their lead, wherever they are in their inclusion journey.”
In 2019 nearly 1500 organisations took part in National Inclusion Week through internal events and activities covering a wide range of workplace inclusion topics, as well as webinars and daily challenges from Inclusive Employers.
The week also features a flagship celebration of the organisations participating in Inclusive Employers Standard, an accreditation tool from Inclusive Employers which recognises organisations’ commitment to creating more inclusive workplaces.
