Join us to find out how diverse Scotland’s workforce is and learn what, and how your organisation can change to benefit from a truly inclusive workplace.

About the webinar
Attendees will hear from Robert Cole of Forth Perspectives about the true state of diversity and inclusion in Scotland’s workplaces and see that despite appearances, the ‘minorities’ are not really a minority.  

Attendees will hear from experts at Business in the Community (BITC) on race, gender and everyday inclusion. There will be the opportunity to hear from businesses BITC Scotland have worked with to help them make changes that have increased innovation, productivity, and inclusion in Scotland’s workplaces. 

Finally, there will be informal discussion with the guest speakers in virtual break-out rooms, where attendees can learn what actions they can take in their organisations and how BITC and Forth Perspectives can support them on their journey. 

This event is open to both BITC members and non-members. It would be suitable for c-suite/senior leaders, diversity and inclusion managers/practitioners and HR/people management managers/practitioners.

Everyday Inclusion
The Everyday Inclusion campaign from Business in the Community (BITC) is designed to support employers in ensuring their employees feel they belong,  have a voice, are valued and are able to be their true selves. 

BITC research shows that almost half of UK employees regularly experience non-inclusive behaviours – often in the form of unintended ‘microaggressions’. This has an impact on wellbeing and wider performance and undermines employers’ efforts to foster inclusive working cultures.

While the impact of COVID-19 on inclusion is still being understood, early signs are that for many, increased pressure and the move of many staff to home working could be making the situation worse.

Following government advice on social distancing, all BITC events over the coming months will be delivered remotely via digital technology.
