Diversity and Inclusion: Strategy and Policy Guidance Advice

This Business in the Community (BITC) toolkit offers advice to businesses on how to develop an inclusive organisational plan which will achieve goals and objectives, win customer, client and supplier support and gain a competitive edge. As well as advice on adopting policies which will support overarching strategies involving diversity and inclusion.

This toolkit will provide practical advice on:

  • resourcing and staff involvement, including ensuring staff buy-in and encouraging managers to promote/be vocal around strategy development
  • communications, including publicising the strategy widely and ensure it reaches as wide an audience
  • implementation, including keeping the strategy document alive by linking to other relevant strategies and policies
  • a reviewing process, including making sure that people are supported with their targets/objectives within the strategy.
