Our third annual Inclusion Month, a major part of our programme to make Wates the most inclusive organisation
A workplace where everyone belongs is built by one small act of inclusion at a time. Inclusion Month is a great opportunity for our colleagues to get involved learn more about intentional inclusion and how they can play their part.
This year’s focus is Allyship at Work. Allyship is about action. It’s not enough to know. It is necessary to act. It is a practice that requires:
- understanding one’s own power and privilege
- intentional and active work to use one’s power and privilege to achieve equity, inclusion, and justice
We can all experience privilege depending on the situation and as such we all have ability to be allies.
The allyship commitment
Allyship is a journey. It starts with understanding one’s privilege and with with one single act of inclusion.
This is why we are asking all colleagues to make their own commitment and together we start this journey – where we learn, listen, speak up and support and advocate for each other.
