Design for Inclusion

Diversity, equity and inclusion are becoming increasingly significant as we move into a more competitive and interconnected workplace.

We work with our clients to support better awareness and understanding of what an inclusive workplace really means for them, and how they can constantly action the bias in their systems.

This allows them to unlock potential for innovation and better acknowledge and support the diversity of both their employee base and deliver high-quality services to an ever more diverse customer base.

The programme is divided into 5 online modules to allow for assimilation, experimentation and headspace between the different modules.

Each online Zoom module is 2.5 hours long and there will be no more than

1 hour of «offline» work to complete between sessions. There will be a kick-off session and a follow-up session 1 month after the end of the programme.

  • We start by facilitating dialogue and awareness about our own assumptions and bias that help us to understand our own stories.
  • We then move into empathy for others’ lived experiences and underline areas for development.
  • We provide bespoke training on designing for inclusion, and work in collaboration with organisational stakeholders to translate how to take this back to the business in the form of sustainable behavioural and culture change.

Tools and methods

An overview of the concepts and different cognitive processes behind the human-centred design thinking methodology and associated tools to deploy your ideas.

Come and share your thoughts, ideas and challenges and co-design new solutions and approaches.

Systems and humans are both complex topics and understanding them is vital if we are to change the culture of an organisation. If we can bring the two together, we can create a powerful force for good in terms of both the systems and the people within them.

The discussions are never simple, and there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution.

But if we start from this point, we can look at the whole from differing angles and apply different approaches to facilitate a better understanding of what makes us and those around us ‘tick’. This in turn will deliver great insight into the environment and experiences we create both for ourselves and each other.
