Following on from the first Diversity Toolkit series, the Inclusion toolkit continues on the journey from diversity to inclusion. As more businesses recognise that having a more diverse workforce is key to success, they now face the complex challenge of keeping it. The route to this is creating a culture where individuals feel included and are able to bring their whole selves to work. Carol Rosati OBE speaks to 10 business leaders who explore some of the biggest challenges individuals and businesses face. You'll hear incredible stories about organisations supporting Transgender individuals during transitioning, enabling those with disabilities, reaching out to disadvantaged youth and raising awareness of mental health and wellbeing. These pragmatic, down to earth conversations are certainly food for thought and we hope inspirational.
