Inclusivitii: 2023, Reflecting on a Year of Transformation and the Road Ahead

As we approach the end of another remarkable year at Inclusivitii, it’s time to pause and reflect on the impactful journeys we’ve embarked upon. This year has been a testament to our commitment to fostering inclusion, diversity, and equity across various sectors. Let’s look back at some of our key projects and the invaluable lessons they’ve taught us.

These diverse experiences have reinforced a crucial lesson: inclusion is not just a nice-to-have; it’s a must-have. The future of every sector hinges on its ability to embrace, celebrate, and leverage diversity. As we move forward, we must continue to break down barriers, challenge biases, and create environments where everyone feels valued and heard.

Inclusive Funding with the National Lottery Community Fund

Working with the National Lottery Community Fund, we developed an inclusive funding strategy that embraced diversity at its core. This initiative highlighted the importance of understanding and respecting the unique needs of different communities, ensuring that funding opportunities are accessible and equitable.

Our Reflections: True inclusivity in funding requires understanding applicants' unique cultural and community contexts. Transparency and open communication are vital in making funding accessible to all.

NHS Confederation’s Anti-Racism Strategy

Our collaboration with the NHS Confederation to roll out and embed their Anti-Racism Strategy was significant. It underscored the necessity of systemic change in large organisations and the power of collective commitment in combating racial inequities.

Our Reflections: Systemic change needs both top-down and bottom-up approaches. Engaging all levels of an organization is crucial for meaningful and lasting anti-racism efforts.

‘In Plain Sight’ Report for Oxford Cancer

Creating the ‘In Plain Sight’ report for Oxford Cancer was a pivotal step in improving diversity in cancer research. This project illuminated the often-overlooked disparities in this field, urging a more inclusive approach to research and treatment.

Our Reflections: Diversity in research leads to more comprehensive and empathetic outcomes. Cancer research means considering a wide range of experiences and backgrounds for truly patient-centered care.

Inclusive Leadership Training with MAPP

Our work with MAPP, a property management organization, focused on nurturing inclusive leadership. Lesson: Inclusive leadership is key to fostering a workplace culture where everyone feels valued and empowered.

Diversity in Sustainability with the University of Oxford

Our work with Oxford Martin’s Agile Programme to increase diversity in sustainability highlighted the intersectionality of environmental issues and social justice. It showcased the need for diverse perspectives in tackling global challenges.

Our Reflections:The intersection of environmental and social issues is undeniable. Sustainable solutions must include diverse voices, especially from those most affected by climate change.

Healing and Empowerment: Devon City Council’s Racial Trauma Initiative

Leading the racial trauma recovery and well-being program at Devon City Council was a journey of profound learning and empathy. It was about creating spaces for healing and empowering individuals to thrive beyond their traumas.

Our Reflections: Healing from racial trauma requires a holistic approach that encompasses both individual support and systemic change within communities.

Allyship Training at the University of London

Rolling out Allyship Training at the University of London was an empowering experience. It emphasised each individual's role in creating an inclusive environment and the impact of active allyship in educational settings.

Effective allyship requires continuous learning and action. It’s about understanding privilege, actively listening to underrepresented voices, and standing up against injustice.

National NHS Projects for Inclusion

Working on national NHS projects to foster inclusion allowed us to contribute to one of the most critical sectors. These projects underlined the importance of an inclusive approach in healthcare, affecting both the workforce and patient care.

Our Reflections: Inclusion directly impacts patient care and employee well-being in healthcare. Cultivating an inclusive environment is essential for a compassionate and effective healthcare system.

As we close this year, let's remember that the journey towards inclusion is ongoing. Each step we take towards understanding and respecting our differences brings us closer to a world where diversity is accepted and cherished.

Let’s begin the new year with a renewed commitment to this cause. Whether you’re part of a large organization, a small team, or just beginning your journey towards understanding diversity and inclusion, your efforts matter. Together, let’s build a future where inclusivity is woven into the very fabric of our society.

Join us at Inclusivitii as we continue championing this cause, creating lasting change, and inspiring others to do the same. Let’s make inclusion not just a part of our work but a part of who we are.

Here’s to a future where everyone belongs.
