Building a strong inclusivity and diversity policy in the workplace will be the topic for speaker Andrea Wallbank at Focus Newtown Enterprise Hub’s second Digital No Limits session on Friday, March 26.
Business in Focus senior HR manager Andrea will be advising attendees on improving workplace culture and building an inclusive business.
At the end of 2020, the hub teamed up with Celf-Able, a diverse group of artists in Powys, to launch the series that aims to promote accessibility and inclusion. The second session will focus on promoting inclusivity, diversity and empowerment within the workplace.
The hub will be welcoming Andrea to discuss equality and diversity from a HR perspective. She is an experienced HR manager and consultant, supporting SMEs across Wales in all aspects of people management and employment issues.
She advises businesses on how to develop workplace culture and implement people practices for business change and growth.
“It’s so important to have a strong inclusivity and diversity policy, and I’ll be showing how to actively become a more inclusive employer, as well as strategies for creating a more inclusive workplace,” said Andrea.
Celf-Able, a group of disabled and non-disabled artists, will also be joining the session. Celf-Able provides opportunities for people to get together, reduce isolation and celebrate disability culture.
Director and chair, Sue Patch, will be delivering an informative presentation on ‘Disability Equality’, which will cover everything from the Social Model of Disability to actions to promote inclusion in society and the workplace.
“We’re really excited to be continuing this series in 2021. It’s set to be a really insightful morning with interesting conversation, valuable learning and an opportunity to connect with like-minded people,” said Holly Jones, hub manager for Focus Newtown Enterprise Hub.
An innovative space to incubate and accelerate new and growing businesses based at Royal Welsh Warehouse, Newtown, the hub is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.
