The Weekly Wrap-Up: Mutually Inclusive with Johanne Penney

This week we had the pleasure of hearing from diversity and inclusion champion Johanne Penney on The Weekly discussing three of her top ways to ensure BAME voices are authentically being heard in the workplace.

If you missed Johanne’s session we’ve got some of her top takeaways for you right here.

Firstly, the importance of education. Johanne highlighted the significance of top-down education for everyone in the business to help enable those all important conversations. Understanding that education is a lifelong journey, not just for the day, Johanne encourages us all to keep learning and keep asking questions.

Next, challenging the processes you’ve used historically. Johanne brought to light the importance of confronting the ways things have always been done, particularly when it comes to recruitment. The talent is out there, we just need to take that exploration a step further.

Finally, make sure your approach isn’t just about ticking boxes, we know this does not work. Johanne spoke about how different companies are all at different places in their journey. Avoid that one size fits all line of action by ensuring your company is taking a considered, measured approach.

We hope you enjoyed our final beta session of The Weekly. If you want to bring the power of PepTalk to your team with fantastic experts like Johanne every week, visit https://theweekly.getapeptalk.com to find out more and sign your team up today.
