Awareness Raising

Awareness Raising 2

 Every journey begins with awareness and understanding.

There are many misunderstandings and untruths about what Equity, Diversity and Inclusion is and means. We co-create companywide campaigns which raise awareness and allow people to explore and understand the benefits of creating an equitable, diverse and inclusive organisation. In this way, you begin to socialise and signal forthcoming changes before they begin.

Tailored

Every Awareness Raising campaign is unique and tailored to the team, department or organisation we are working with, starting with where your people are now. We take the time to understand them and the company culture, so we can recommend a range of Awareness Raising tactics that work.

Diversity for Executive Leaders

Your leadership is crucial in creating an equitable, diverse and inclusive organisation where everyone benefits. We run workshops which motivate and inspire your senior leadership, helping them discover their personal levels of commitment and the competitive advantage that diversity brings an organisation.  We show them what it means to be an inclusive leader.

Safe, respectful, honest conversations

Your colleagues need to be able to explore their current thinking about Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and express their hopes and fears. Suppressing their views is unhelpful for them and the organisation – we encourage open, respectful discussions as this is crucial to building true understanding.

Understanding is crucial to creating an equitable, diverse and inclusive organisation where everyone can thrive. Our Awareness Raising consultancy and services are often the first step on a successful journey for many organisations.

Inclusive Behaviours Training and Inclusive Behaviours Framework  

 

The Client: A studio in the games industry 

 

The Challenge: The studio noticed that they had an overwhelmingly non-diverse environment where people from minority backgrounds didn’t feel at home. They asked us to help them develop a framework for Inclusion that everyone could get behind, that would improve Inclusion and ultimately benefit everyone by increasing the diversity of thought available to the studio. 

 

What We Did: We designed an Inclusive Behaviours Framework document to be launched alongside the studio’s refreshed EDI strategy. This Framework contains a chapter for each of the 8 Inclusive Behaviours©, with an introduction from the Studio Director. Each Inclusive Behaviour ties to an existing Studio Value and includes examples of how to engage with it. The Framework includes learning tips, challenges and signposts to more learning.  

 

The Outcome: The content has been very well received by staff, and team managers use the content to discuss Inclusion in team meetings. The framework is also being used as a springboard to further learning and development, including a series of virtual sessions for managers and staff on each of the 8 Inclusive Behaviours©. Individual staff are also already reporting that they are noticing themselves and their everyday behaviours changing.
