#truInclusion on-line is a global unconference event focused on inclusion and belonging, hosted by Joanne Lockwood, Founder and CEO of SEE Change Happen.
Who is it for? - It is for everyone, be you an HR professional, a D&I practitioners, a vendor wanting showcase or promote some tech, or maybe an innovation to build, measure or track inclusive behaviour, or simply that you are someone that wants to join in a conversation and have a voice. It is envisaged that every topic and conversation is intersectional and not focused on one particular element or group, and we want to move the conversations on from simple protected characteristics and look at challenges faced by all people in the workplace.
#truInclusion is not going to be like every other on-line D&I conference you have attended – everyone or anyone can host a track, whether you are C-Level or a passionate person with a question or message to spread. #truInclusion is about amplifying what looks great, sharing ideas and opening up discussions.
Best of all, now we are bringing this online through Zoom, everyone can attend from wherever they are!

When we asked HR Directors and Diversity and Inclusion Managers what frustrates them about their jobs they said a lack of engagement from their CEO in creating a culture of inclusion kept them up at night. In this event we will be discussing ways in which you can engage your CEO and other senior leaders in driving forwards diversity and inclusion for your business.

IEDP, December 2016
The IEDP’s winter seminar was facilitated by IEDP advisory friend Natasha Broomfield-Reid and featured a fascinating presentation by Christopher Watkins, Senior Disability Consultant from the Business Disability Forum (BDF).
Christopher identified three distinct types of intervention that organisations should make in relation to the mental health of their staff, and argued forcefully that it is important to work on all three areas, as too much focus on one or two of them can actually be counterproductive.
The three categories of intervention he suggested are:
Culture – addressing the stigma attached to mental ill health, encouraging an environment where people feel able to talk about their mental health
Proactive – activity focusing on the well-being of staff in terms of exercise, healthy eating, providing a quiet space etc.
Responsive – identifying people who are experiencing mental ill health, talking to them about to identify specific triggers or barriers, then acting to avoid triggers and make adjustments to address barriers
The key point that he made was that cultural, proactive and responsive interventions cannot exist in isolation and must be balanced in order to be effective. These may be competing agendas, but any single approach in isolation may be counterproductive or counter-inclusive.
