For June's virtual meetup we have Julie Wilson from Northumbria Uni speaking on 'Culturally Inclusive Workplaces' on 9th June at 10am via Zoom.
In this forum, we will take a holistic view of what employers need to consider and act upon to remove systemic barriers within our workplaces, to ensure that people are supported through the whole lifecycle of their time with an organisation from their first interactions as an applicant, to the time they leave.
What are the key, practical things that we can do to create a culture where people feel valued and are truly supported to progress?
Date: Thursday 9th June
Time: 10am – 10.45am
