We’re really proud to be an organisation who champions inclusion within the workplace and this is why we were excited to work with our partners from Independent East on our #flourish campaign.
Independent East, an informal alliance of five community-focused housing associations in the East of England – Broadland Housing, Freebridge Community Housing, Havebury Housing Partnership, Saffron Housing Trust and Orwell Housing Association, launched the #Flourish campaign designed to promote equality, diversity and inclusion in their workplaces and communities so that everyone can be themselves, where they can grow and flourish.
The campaign concept is based around the idea that just as every plant needs a different environment, treatment, and conditions to thrive, so do we as individuals.
Since inception, the five housing associations have worked collaboratively to raise awareness about the importance of inclusion through surveys, training and events, as well as each organisation committing to scrutinise their internal processes to see how they could be improved.
And to mark the last day of National Inclusion Week, we launched our #flourish pledge. A pledge which shares our commitment to our colleagues and customers, that we want to make our organisations a place for everyone.
We are also inviting our customers & colleagues to take the pledge themselves, in order to share your support, which you can do so via the link here.
