You can now register for July's Employer Support Group it would be amazing to see as many of the Includability community there as possible.
Date: Wednesday 28th July
Time: 10:30AM – 11:45AM BST
To provide an environment where friendships are formed, collaboration is encouraged and we get to share successful initiatives and/or help each other overcome barriers.
This monthly ESG will give you the opportunity to get to know other people that are part of the includability community, with the simple logic that together we can make meaningful change, quicker.
We do have a few basic ‘House Rules’
Each ESG will last approximately 75 minutes and will be a relaxed environment.
Introduction and Key Dates for the coming month announced
We would love to highlight any webinars, events or initiatives you are running during the coming month – PLEASE EMAIL US IN ADVANCE WITH DETAILS (DATE, TIME, TOPIC, GUESTS (or if you are looking to get additional guests) and HOW TO REGISTER or PARTICIPATE)
