Join peers to share your challenges, learnings, experiences and best practice on inclusive recruitment.

This is a virtual event.


Open to members of Business in the Community (BITC) who are Opening Doors signatories.


Creating meaningful employment is one of the most significant ways that businesses can contribute to the livelihoods of individuals and communities, and is, for many the only sustainable route out of poverty.

Offering quality work experience, adopting inclusive approaches to recruitment, and breaking down barriers to entering work for people from disadvantaged groups can benefit businesses by helping them tackle skills shortages, build new talent pipelines, boost retention rates and achieve higher productivity.

BITC is calling on employers to commit to making their jobs more accessible to diverse talent by committing to take action through our Opening Doors inclusive recruitment campaign.

About the event

Join the next webinar in our Opening Doors series, which will focus on how employers can support people with convictions into work. Hot on the heels of the launch of the Charter, which requires signatories to commit to Ban the Box in order to reach Gold standard. We will be co-hosting the event with the Fair Chance Business Alliance to understand what some of the stumbling blocks are for employers when it comes to recruiting people with experience of the criminal justice system, and – crucially – how they can overcome them.
