Voscuris launch Inclusion in Tech meetup

Voscuris has announced that it will be taking part in National Inclusion Week 2020

National Inclusion Week, running from September 28th-October 4th 2020, was created by Inclusive Employers and aims to raise awareness of inclusion in the workplace. Now in its eighth year, the 2020 theme for national inclusion week is Each One Reach one. It is about bringing people and organisations together to connect and inspire each other to make inclusion an everyday reality. Together, we will build the biggest inclusion chain ever.

Amongst the activities Voscuris has planned for National Inclusion Week they are launching ‘Inclusion In Tech Lunch & Learn’, a virtual meetup for local tech SMEs to learn and share ideas about inclusion and diversity in the workplace.  Voscuris are delighted to have Lynsey Stewart, Director at HeadsTogether leading the kick-off introductory session on inclusion, and are looking forward to the first meet up on the 16th of October.

Alison Young, COO, Voscuris

“For any business its core assets are its employees, and as a young company we feel passionate about ensuring that inclusion is embedded into the very fabric of our company culture.  We recognised early on that our actions around inclusion will evolve as our business grows, and as the technology sector is by nature disruptive and innovative we are looking forward to coming together with other like-minded local tech companies to share ideas and learning experiences and celebrate our inclusion successes.”

Richard McKenna, Managing Director, Inclusive Employers, said:

“It’s fantastic to see that Voscuris is joining employers up and down the UK by taking part in National Inclusion Week. This shows that they take building inclusive workplaces seriously and I welcome their commitment to do so. I’m really excited to see how they use National Inclusion Week as a force for change and celebration and hope others will be inspired to follow their lead, wherever they are in their inclusion journey”

In 2019 nearly 1500 organisations took park in National Inclusion Week through internal events and activities covering a wide range of workplace inclusion topics, as well as webinars and daily challenges from Inclusion Employers.

The week also features a flagship celebration of the organisations participating in Inclusive Employers Standard, an accreditation tool from Inclusive Employers which recognises organisations’ commitment to creating more inclusive workplaces.
