Supporting National Inclusion Week 2023

National Inclusion Week

Last week, we proudly supported National Inclusion Week (25th September – 3rd October)

The national campaign focuses on raising awareness and promoting inclusion at work. It encourages employers and employees to think about how they can improve and celebrate their successes through diversity and inclusion work.

This year the theme, ‘Take Action Make Impact,’ encouraged everyone to consider what actions they can take to positively affect marginalised individuals in their workplaces.

We are dedicated to creating an inclusive workplace and National Inclusion Week is just one way we demonstrate our commitment to this mission.

Throughout the week we:

ENGAGED: We encouraged open conversations among our employees, empowering them to drive change and action while sharing inclusive moments.

EQUIPPED: We provided valuable training and shared information to enhance awareness.

EMPOWERED: We launched our ‘inclusive voice box,’ A suggestion platform where employees can share thoughts, challenge ideas constructively, and provide feedback.

EMBEDDED: Building on last year’s commitments, we assessed the progress made across the business in driving inclusion.

EVOLVED: We promoted ongoing learning and dialogue on diversity and inclusion. Encouraging employees to explore resources like TED Talks, videos, podcasts, and books. These resources aim to spark meaningful discussions and deepen our collective understanding.

Diversity, inclusion, and equality remain fundamental values at Van Elle. We continue in our efforts to educate and raise awareness across our business.
