Inclusion Week 2021 is taking place from 27 September – 3 October. Every year Inclusion week has a theme and this year, the theme is unity. National Inclusion Week is the annual celebration of togetherness and promotes the power of acceptance in the face of discrimination. It highlights the importance of inclusive practices, especially within the workplace, to educate business leaders on their role in the quest for equality.

Diversity refers to political beliefs, race, culture, sexual orientation, religion, class and gender identity differences. In the workplace, diversity means your staff consists of individuals who bring new perspectives and backgrounds to the table.

Inclusion means that everyone in the diverse mix feels involved, valued, respected, treated fairly, and embedded in your culture. Empowering all employees and recognizing their special talents is part of creating an inclusive company.

Both aspects are important一diversity without inclusion can result in a toxic culture, and inclusion without diversity can make a company stagnant. Companies are starting to focus more on diversity, but many disregard the inclusion piece of the puzzle. Without both inclusion and diversity, your workforce will feel out of place and unsupported.

At Aspiration Training, we aim to establish a sense of belonging among our team members, employers and learners. When people feel more connected at work, they work harder and more intelligently, producing higher quality work. Our values include being passionate about people and communicating with purpose, and we wish to create a great place to work.
