The seed was planted by our EmbRace You committee and the planning quickly grew into a whole week of initiatives. It was so uplifting and inspiring to see so many Ambassadors, managers, team leaders and the head office team celebrate and promote inclusion in all its forms.
The theme for National Inclusion Week this year was about connecting with a person or organisation to help them understand the opportunity of inclusion and inspiring each other to make inclusion an everyday reality. We know that an inclusive workplace is a more productive and innovative one, but what is far more important about inclusion in the workplace is how it positively impacts our wellbeing and mental health.
Inclusivi-Tea demonstration with Restaurant Associates UK
The Rapport team and EmbRace You committee also joined our Restaurant Associates UK colleagues and Pride in Food representatives to enjoy a socially distanced Inclusivi-Tea party. It was so good to see one another in person and learn more about colleagues from across different parts of our business. We were also lucky to get some of our EmbRace You committee members together for the first time and talk all things diversity and inclusion.
