Celebrate National Inclusion Week 2021
National Inclusion week is taking place from 27th September – 3rd October this year. It is designed to celebrate everyday inclusion in all its forms. 2021 marks the 9th year Inclusive Employers has brought together organisations across the globe to celebrate, share and inspire inclusion practices.
Each year National Inclusion Week has a theme and this year it’s all about unity. In 2020, 16 million participants connected via the #NationalInclusionWeek2020 embracing the theme ‘Each One, Reach One’. 2021 is building on this theme and the connections that were made. If you or your employer displays some practice that needs to be shouted about this Inclusion week, share what you’re doing using the #UnitedForInclusion and #NationalInclusionWeek2021

Our aim is to make all colleagues feel included, and the week provides us with an opportunity to celebrate the work we’re doing, as well as educating colleagues and starting conversations around inclusion. 2019 was the biggest and best celebration yet, with over 100 local Co-op activities taking place across the UK ranging from, inclusivi-tea mornings, team commitments, external speaker and colleague network led events to name a few.”
