For the second year running, nmcn will be taking part in National Inclusion Week 2020.
The dedicated week, running from September 28th-October 4th, was created by Inclusive Employers 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, focusing on bringing people and organisations together to connect and inspire each other to make inclusion an everyday reality. Together, the aim is to build the biggest inclusion chain ever.
Amongst the activities nmcn has planned are daily blogs for their employees and two externally and virtually facilitated events by EDIT Development to improve awareness around the topics of unconscious bias and not being a bystander.
For the first time, as part of nmcn’s commitment to inclusivity, the company has also opened up the events to its supply chain, subcontractors and framework partners.
Jamie Swanston, Supply Chain and Procurement Director at nmcn, said: “We felt that to show a true sense of inclusion, we would invite our supply chain, subcontractors and framework partners to participate on this occasion. We see extending the shared knowledge as key to our common goal and vision to become a truly inclusive organisation that has a positive impact not only on our people, but the communities we work with too.”
Heather Binnie, Environmental Advisor at nmcn and one of the key founders of nmcn’s Diversity Network, comments: “As nmcn continues to grow, we must ensure that we are inclusive of everyone in order to attract a diverse group of people. It is imperative that we create an inclusive workplace and atmosphere that encourages and enables everyone to grow and develop. We hope that by being involved in National Inclusion Week we can show our commitment to this and hear stories of inclusivity from our colleagues.”
Richard McKenna, Managing Director of Inclusive Employers, said: “It’s fantastic to see that nmcn 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 1,500 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.
