Conversation starter: What does inclusion mean to you?
Our final Newsletter for 2022, so I thought I would provide a round-up of releases that we have delivered in the year, together with new releases for the first part of 2023. Several new bite-size videos were launched within our film library/internal marketing sections of our Members' Resource Centre (MRC), the latest one being 'What is intersectionality?'Peter ThorpeHead of Business Development
So to recap, the new titles released on schedule during 2022 (in case you missed any), were:
This course looks at the nature of domestic abuse, its prevalence and its impact, and sets out what employers can do to support victim-survivors in the workplace.
In 2022 we also released new lived experience videos: Intersectionality
People are multi-faceted in their identities and may identify with several different marginalised or minority groups at the same time. These overlapping identities can result in multiple and intersecting forms of bias, discrimination and disadvantage that can affect areas such as workplace inclusion, educational achievement, and mental and physical health outcomes.
Intersectionality provides a framework for considering people’s overlapping identities and experiences in order to understand the complexity of the biases and prejudices that they face and take steps to address any resulting inequality or discrimination. Combining expert insight, personal stories and original drama, this course explains the concept of intersectionality and looks at how applying an intersectional lens can help us to achieve equity and inclusion in the workplace and beyond.
The full course will be ready in the latter part of January, and the short film in February. I’ll drop you an email when these are ready to preview and download.
