Being Inclusive is different to being included. We can be included, but still feel on the outside because the environment doesn’t take into consideration what is important to us and/or relate to our individual culture and background. Building a truly inclusive culture doesn’t happen by ticking a box, it can only happen when at an individual level we are open to be educated and challenged, which ultimately drives a collective change.
This programme from the North East and Yorkshire Leadership Academy (NEYLA) is focused on creating an environment that is psychologically safe to support the delivery of the ED&I agenda, and at the same time open up the opportunity for all conversations that matter to take place.
Workshop One: To highlight the importance of self-awareness to drive accountability and change.
Workshop Two: To enable more curiosity and less judgement around the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion agenda to enable real change instead of tick boxing.
