Belonging in the Workplace and EDI

Get to the HEART of the matter

The world of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is vast, ever-changing and, for many, overwhelming. Even what we call this field is up for debate! So, for those with decision-making responsibility or an interest in implementing change at work, the first challenge might be knowing where to begin.

This 2-hour, in person interactive workshop offers an opportunity to get to the heart of the matter – beginning to explore what it means to belong and how we can create spaces where people feel welcomed, valued and able to make the best use of their skills. The session will offer a brief overview of approaches to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion work, followed by opportunities to reflect on and make plans towards addressing barriers to belonging.

Facilitated by coach and consultant, Mo Ford, member of the core EDI Group at Oasis.
