Inclusive Leadership Pledge

The Inclusive Leadership Pledge was launched by businesses in response to the Leadership Commission’s call to realise a leadership that better represents the diversity of the West Midlands. Designed for employers, the Pledge asks organisations and senior leaders to commit to promoting diversity and embedding inclusion. It is deliberately flexible so that signatories can tailor their pledges to the specific strengths and challenges of their organisation.

Leaders Like you Report

This report is a summary of a nine-month research programme commissioned by the West Midlands Combined Authority’s Leadership Commission on promoting leadership diversity in the area covered by the WMCA. This work is a first amongst combined authorities and its central message – that there is now an economic and business imperative for greater leadership diversity and inclusivity in addition to the clear social imperative - needs to be taken up across the whole country, not only through the WMCA area.

Connecting Cranes with Communities

The West Midlands Combined Authority has promised that the investment it makes will lead to inclusive economic growth. Localise West Midlands has been commissioned by the West Midlands combined Authority Inclusive Growth Unit to consult with Civil Society on what Inclusive Growth looks like. The work is supported by the Barrow Cadbury Trust. This report presents findings from engagement with Civil Society in Autumn 2018.

Sign up to 'Ban the Box

Creating meaningful employment is one of the most significant ways that business contributes to the livelihoods of individuals and communities, and is for many the only sustainable route out of poverty. Offering quality experience of work, adopting new approaches to recruitment and breaking down barriers to entering work for people from disadvantaged groups can benefit business by tackling skills shortages, building new talent pipelines, boosting retention rates and achieving higher productivity.

Inclusive Employers

Our National Inclusion Standard is an evidence-based, objective, accreditation tool for assessing and promoting inclusion in the workplace. The National Inclusion Standard acts as a framework for delivering on your organisation’s diversity and inclusion strategy and helps you to measure and further improve the progress you are making towards becoming a more inclusive employer. It is a way to assess and acknowledge where your organisation is in its inclusion journey through your accreditation status. Put simply, it’s the best way of checking how inclusive your organisation is.

Diversity within small and medium-sized enterprises

This is a guide for European small and medium-sized enterprise (SMEs) managers wishing to improve the competitiveness and the social and economic performance of their business by building on the diversity of their workforce. The publication contains basic information for all SMEs to use, regardless of their size (from 1 to 500 employees), business sector, location (local, regional, national) and management mode. This publication is not intended to be comprehensive but rather to highlight key elements for successful diversification by SME management.

The Challenge - Social Mixing in the Workplace

This report collects and evaluates existing research on the workplace and social
integration. We believe that this remains a relatively under-explored question,
and that we need to give much more thought to the important role that our
workplaces might play in building a more integrated society. We show that
interactions at work can help to build social bonds, and we explore key findings
to understand how and under what conditions workplace social mixing has the
most positive impact.
