The holistic case for Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging is something that can be challenging and uncomfortable to navigate in our workplace. And a big part of this is that it can mean different things to different people. Over the past few months we have all seen how the inequities in our society and workplaces have continued to play out. But there is a change coming, which can be somewhat daunting when we don’t have a clear idea of how to begin our journey.

This is something that we at NRG have been striving to find out how we can be a part of the change. As we continue our journey, we would like to extend our learning experience to the business community in which we work, across all sectors, professions and functions and invite you to join us on a virtual interactive workshop facilitated by Chico Chakravorty, Founder of Doing Diversity Differently.

The session will enable you to:

  • be clumsily human to begin (or further) your journey and learning about D&I
  • learn how you can truly make a difference to your existing workforce
  • create a culture of belonging in your workplace for all
  • start becoming more comfortable with those uncomfortable conversations
  • become more attractive to those outside your organisation, whether that be your customers, or potential candidates looking to you as a possible employer

The session is aimed at managers and leaders at Head of level and above. There is a huge benefit for all leaders, but especially those where people, culture and diversity are not a predominant part of the standard (roles such as CEOs, Finance Directors, Head of Marketing, Operations Directors etc).

Date:     Tuesday 8th December

Time:    11am – 12.30pm

Where:  Zoom

To register your interest in attending this event please contact Julie Mordue, Client Relationship Manager here.

*Please note that places are limited for this event which we are running as part of our added value service and therefore priority will be given to our partner organisations and clients.
