Inclusion Tips for Today

At Hive Learning, we’re on a mission to help people build a more inclusive world.

But in the midst of the anti-discrimination protests currently taking place worldwide, this can feel like an overwhelming and impossible task to tackle.

We believe that education is an essential starting point, and having a conversation about these issues with empathy, trust, compassion and curiosity is critical if we want to create lasting change.

So we’ve published resources from our Inclusion Works programme below which are built to give people tiny actions they can apply straight away to consciously include and overcome the systemic unconscious bias that sits at the heart of so many of our systems, and especially now.

This is a starter for 10 — we’ve favoured speed and action over perfection in publishing lots of these (which are usually deployed as a learning journey of content, conversation and reflection with your peers), so if you have any ideas or suggestions on how to make them more relevant right now, or if there’s anything else you’d like to learn about, please share with us here.
