Wednesday 22nd January marked NELA’s inaugural Inclusion Carousel Event which took place at St James Park, Newcastle.
The event brought together an array of delegates from across the system including Patient Leaders, Equality and Diversity Leads, HR&OD colleagues alongside some of our newly enrolled Stepping Up delegates and those who have a special interest in inclusion.
Our morning session included a well-received national update from Catherine Loftus, followed by a thought provoking session “How do I know I am not the bully?” leaving us all challenging our own workplace behaviour.
In the afternoon we moved to the “carousel” element of the day, which offered a great variety of workshop options, delivered by our partner organisations. Examples of workshops included (but not exhaustive);
Impact of Inclusion on Wellbeing, Menopause, Coaching for Inclusion and Co Production in Cancer Services.
This was a perfect opportunity to share the learning, and showcase the great work taking place across our region ensuring we really are “the best place to work.”
And finally, our event was brought to both an energetic and celebratory close by Aukestra, a local band, who go #beyondinclusion
