International Women’s Day – Inclusion Challenge!

Posted by Tracy Powley 04/03/15

Coloured ThreadsThe 8th March is International Women’s Day and it is International Men’s Day on November 19th. To mark both days we would like to issue an inclusion challenge to you...

It is often small things we do at work that make a difference and help build an inclusive working culture 

For example

  • making an effort to talk to someone who you perceive as different to you – to get to know them better
  • coaching someone who has a different communication style to you (introvert/extrovert for example)
  • doing something kind for someone you work with – random acts of kindness contribute to feelings of happiness and wellbeing
  • consciously deciding not to participate in “gossipy” conversations
  • thanking someone for what they have done - outside your own team

In the 6 months between the two “awareness days”, we challenge you to identify a small act of inclusion you can take each month and implement on a regular basis... 6 things which you will regularly do – and let us know the difference it makes.

Take a look at our range of workshops which help tackle inappropriate behaviour and promote inclusive working environments or call us for a chat about how we can help you create happier, more cooperative and inclusive teams 01903 732782 or

Stella Chandler and I founded Focal Point on a shared belief that a training course run in isolation doesn't work. We passionately believe there must be support both before and after the training or coaching session itself for it to make a difference. When I am not facilitating sessions with clients or looking at ways to grow the Focal Point business, you will find me in a calming yoga class...
