NCFE commits to strengthening equality, diversity and inclusion principles
NCFE is proud to announce that we now hold Inclusive Companies Membership status, which we first gained last month.
The Inclusive Companies (IC) Membership is a nationally recognised membership body within the diversity and inclusion sector that’s committed to the principles of equality of opportunity for all. Membership encourages participating organisations to connect, collaborate and share best practice with cross-industry sectors, and offers members some unique benefits.
These benefits include unlimited access to the IC Member hub, which provides a wealth of dynamic and informative resources that can be shared with employees such as toolkits, webinar recordings and practical case studies from the UK’s most inclusive employees. It also includes access to the Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List Survey, an innovative tool that allows organisations to analyse their progress and commitment towards achieving equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI).
Upon receiving IC Membership, Adam Goldstein, Chief Operating Officer at NCFE, said: "Gaining Inclusive Companies Membership is an incredibly important and positive step on our journey towards fostering a truly inclusive environment here at NCFE. I feel strongly that the benefits this membership brings will help us to learn, collaborate, and ultimately progress towards achieving our ambitious EDI goals.
“Over the past year, we’ve really focused on driving change across the organisation and bringing the discussion around equality, diversity and inclusion towards the forefront of our operations. We've made progress in several key areas, for example establishing our EDI committee, hosting workshops supported by external experts, and developing internal guidance for staff on the topic of creating inclusive content across the board.
“We're really excited to enter this partnership with Inclusive Companies and look forward to the knowledge, insight and understanding this membership will allow us to share in both directions.”
A further benefit which we’re already maximising is being able to share job vacancies on the Inclusive Jobs site – a digital gateway that’s helping to further promote EDI when it comes to hiring talent across the UK.
Katie Newton, Talent Acquisition Partner at NCFE, said: “Part of NCFE’s vision for our people is to attract and retain a diverse range of talent, and so the opportunity to advertise on Inclusive Jobs as the UK’s most efficient diverse job site is a great way of encouraging applications from individuals with a diverse background, who are actively seeking employment with an inclusive employer.”
The IC Membership exists to challenge the lack of diverse representation within UK-based organisations and to assist employers to foster a truly inclusive environment, within which they recognise and value the differences of each employee.
