National Inclusion Week, a week dedicated to raising awareness of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, will take place from Monday 25 September.
This year the theme is 'Take Action Make Impact'.
This is a great opportunity to understand and discuss challenges around different inclusion themes, meet colleagues and promote resources and support available to all.
During the week, you can expect a range of different events happening across our campuses and we'll share resources and updates on inclusion activities across all areas of the University.
BAMEish – Social Event – Wednesday 27 September – 10.00-11.00 – Craiglockhart, 3/11.
Come along to our social event as we are looking to relaunch our BAMEish Network, and we want to hear from and celebrate colleagues from diverse backgrounds, to help us reshape the Network and its goals.
Supporting Working Carers – for Line Managers – Thursday 28 September – 11am-12pm – Online.
An estimated 44% of the Scottish workforce balances an unpaid caring role for a family member or friend alongside their employment. Edinburgh Carers Network is partnering with VOCAL to help you as an line manager to identify and support working carers in your organisation to remain in employment. This session aims to make carers more visible in the workplace and help managers reflect on the hidden impacts of caring and how they can support team members who are working carers. Register here.
