Diversity & Inclusion Policies in Practice

20th Jan 2020

Diversity, Equality and Inclusion are part of the global conversation and forward thinking organisations are embracing the individualism of people as a way to attract talent and ultimately grow their business.  While the focus of this session is through the lens of the employer,  leader, or manager; it is important to note that when an organisation is inclusive this also reflects in how they represent themselves in the market and to their clients and the public more widely.

In this webinar, Rebecca Armstrong, founder of Sparkle Consultancy, and Hannah Perrin, VMG’s Group Development Manager, will present a practical guide to building an inclusive workplace in which your people can thrive and deliver excellence in the veterinary sector.  This webinar supports the suite of Inclusion Led policy templates which are available to you for free as a member of the Veterinary Management Group.

Rebecca and Hannah will discuss:

  • Why implement/review inclusion policies in your workplace?
  • What you need to consider when building an inclusive culture
  • Neurodiversity in the workplace
  • Specific policies to create, implement or review including carers, domestic abuse, fertility treatment, menopause, religious observance, stress, transgender quality and wellbeing
  • Implementing reasonable adjustments in your workplace

Registration is free for VMG members; £40 for non-members.
