This year’s theme is Everyday Inclusion, championing practical ways employers can create an inclusive environment at work and inspire others to follow suit.

Sabiha Patel, Head of Equality and Inclusion in the Equality Policy Unit (EPU), said: “It’s my pleasure to invite you to join our celebration of National Inclusion Week. The Week aims to highlight our distinctively international and diverse colleague and student community, encouraging all to get involved”.

Leeds’ involvement for this second year supports our vision of the University as a beacon of excellence for equality and inclusion in the higher education sector.

Sabiha continues, “This year we’re launching the week with the opening of the Sensory Garden at Charles Morris Hall followed by workshops, drop-in sessions, and presentations from colleagues across the University as well as other city organisations. We look forward to seeing you at one of the many events.”

Full details of the programme will be revealed nearer the date.

And there’s still time for you to contribute to the schedule. The Equality and Policy Unit would like to hear your ideas for events, seminars and practical sessions.

Please email Kyle Griffith with suggestions or for further information about National Inclusion Week.

The National Inclusion Week campaign is run by Inclusive Employers, a membership organisation seeking to build workplaces that understand and promote diversity.
