Disability Collaborative Network and EMBED outline practical steps towards inclusive workplace practice and present the workplace passport.

About this Event

Small to medium organisations are agile organisations which can, in many cases, adapt to change more easily than larger or national bodies. This webinar, with inclusion specialists Becki Morris and Sarah Simcoe, specifically supports small to medium heritage sector organisations to identify inexpensive and practical tools that will support volunteers, trustees and stakeholders to create inclusive working practice.

Focussing on these key areas, heritage organisations will be guided through essential information and practical steps on:

• Equality, Diversity and Inclusion as successful business practice

• Supporting your workforce

• The principles of the Passport and its role within an organisation

• The benefits of the Passport, both for the individual and the organisation

• How to use the passport within your heritage organisation

In this session you will find out about responsibilities with current legislation through clear advice on implementing workplace adjustments, under the Equality Act 2010 and other legislation.

Becki Morris

Becki Morris is an independent consultant who works across sectors to support organisations and the Heritage Sector in intersectional inclusive practice in the workforce, working practice and service provision.

Since 2015, Becki created and founded the Disability Collaborative Network in Heritage. DCN creates and supports all organisations in the Heritage Sector through identifying barriers, creating solutions and implementing positive action to empower staff, agencies, policymakers and organisations to create intersectional inclusive practice.

In 2020, DCN became a partner of EMBED, a unique cross sector partnership to support the heritage sector in key skills and learning to develop a fresh approach to diverse museums and heritage organisations on their inclusion journey through business skills, strategic planning, resources and training which reflect the budgetary constraints of the sector and organisation.

Sarah Simcoe

Sarah is a globally experienced business leader who held several positions within the private sector before embarking with her own business in 2018, and Sarah may be familiar to you all for having previously worked at Fujitsu where she led the conversation around disability networks. Passionate about responsible inclusive business that is inherently accessible and collaborative, Sarah now supports organisations such as Purple, enei, There Be Giants and PurpleSpace in providing coaching, consultancy, access auditing and people development to their members and clients.

Given Sarah’s belief in collaboration being essential to inclusion and accessibility, Sarah created and founded EMBED in 2019. This consortium brings together inclusion focused consultants and organisations from across sectors and industries to offer accessible, affordable and inclusion focused services – with clients leveraging this expertise and through partnerships with DCN, Druthers and Cleen already in flight, EMBED is encouraging collaboration as a core value and essential ingredient in helping organisations learn lessons from other sectors.
