National Inclusion Week 2021

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
LinkedIn Learning

National Inclusion Week (27 September – 3 October 2021) is created by Inclusive Employers who organise the campaign each year. The week aims to raise awareness of inclusion in the workplace. Now in its ninth year, the 2021 theme for National Inclusion Week is United For Inclusion. It is about bringing people together to share learning and best practice so we can work together to reach our shared goal of making inclusion an everyday reality.  

Every year National Inclusion Week has a theme and in 2021 it is about unity. By participating in Inclusion Week you are joining the Inclusive Employers team and thousands of inclusioneers worldwide as we take action to be #UnitedForInclusion for #NationalInclusionWeek2021. 

Below we’ve also highlighted a collection of LinkedIn Learning courses and Learning Paths around the theme of inclusion and unity. You’ll also find several National Inclusion Week events, hosted by Inclusive Employers, and their podcast series ‘Talking inclusion with…’. 

More information about National Inclusion Week and how to get involved is available via the Inclusive Employers website.
