    Lynsey Stewart, director at specialist HR consulting firm, HeadsTogether will lead the kick-off introductory session on inclusion.

    National Inclusion Week, running from 28 September 28 – 4 October, was created by Inclusive Employers and aims to raise awareness of inclusion in the workplace.

    Alison Young, COO at Voscuris said: "For any business its core assets are its employees, and as a young company (founded in 2015), we feel passionate about ensuring that inclusion is embedded into the very fabric of our company culture. 

    “We recognised early on that our actions around inclusion will evolve as our business grows, and as the technology sector is by nature disruptive and innovative we are looking forward to coming together with other like-minded local tech companies to share ideas and learning experiences and celebrate our inclusion successes."  

    In 2019 nearly 1500 organisations took park in National Inclusion Week through internal events and activities covering a wide range of workplace inclusion topics.

    The week also features a flagship celebration of the organisations participating in Inclusive Employers Standard, an accreditation tool from Inclusive Employers which recognises organisations’ commitment to creating more inclusive workplaces.
