It is widely accepted that inclusion and diversity is a fundamental part of any workplace and that employers which are able to create a genuinely inclusive environment will reap the rewards – from attracting talent to higher retention rates to increased profitability to a reduction in employment claims.
During this webinar we will consider what it means to be an ally in the employment context and we will give practical examples of how employers can promote allyship. Genuine inclusion and diversity cannot be achieved by strategies, policies and procedures alone – action needs to be taken.
We will also consider the legal reasons why allyship is so important. With an outline of the legal parameters from across the globe we will highlight the obligations on employers in respect of minority groups and how allyship can go some way towards meeting those obligations.
