The Inclusion Exchange: "Creating a culture of accountability"
For our second edition of The Inclusion Exchange, we’ll be offering a Special Edition to mark National Inclusion Week #thepowerofnow.

We’ll be exploring how we can drive improvements in equity, diversity and inclusion by empowering everyone in an organisation to be responsible for creating a fairer environment.

On the agenda:

· Mandeep Rupra will share her personal journey from the high impact change programme at the National Union of Students (NUS) where she addressed institutional racism, to Head of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at Citizens Advice.

· Examples of what a culture of accountability looks like in practice when improving the lives of marginalised service users, customers and staff.

· Spotlight on Citizens Advice initiatives and approaches to advance equity and inclusion

Live audience Q&A

We will be championing the NIW Daily Action "The Power of Knowledge - take ownership of your learning" which encourages everyone to act, to understand the role they have to play in creating more inclusive cultures, both in the workplace and outside.

Sep 30, 2022 12:00 PM in London
