Zoominar: Addressing racism and championing inclusion in the workplace

Start Time: 9:00 am
Location:  Online

Systemic racism exists in our workplaces, and such racism leads to the unfair and/or inappropriate treatment of Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) colleagues, and limits their career and progression opportunities.

As internal communicators, you have a responsibility to confront racism in your workplace and actively encourage an inclusive culture that welcomes and encourages diversity.

In this virtual discussion via Zoom, we will look at how IC can coach managers and leaders about unconscious bias in recruitment and promotion, support BAME employees – recognising the differing needs of different groups – and work with diversity networks to implement effective diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Registration for this event is now closed but don't worry it is being recorded so you can catch later!

Webinar: A break from the new norm - Why evidence is needed to influence the way forward and reset your internal communication strategy

Start Time: 3:00 pm
Location:  Online Webinar

A break from the new norm - Why evidence is needed to influence the way forward and reset your internal communication strategy.

Pause for a moment… Feels good, doesn’t it?

Time to think is at a premium right now – without exception. We’re certainly feeling it in the IC community, as we constantly adapt to what the world throws at us and respond to the unique needs of our people.

Gatehouse, a Gallagher Company, has teamed up with the Institute of Internal Communication to bring you a webinar that looks at the value of insight. We’ll be discussing why, now more than ever, evidence is needed when it comes to influencing the way forward and resetting your internal communication strategy.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? Definitely worth an hour of your time.
