Designing for Inclusivity in Entrepreneurship

Take action! How to centre inclusion & anti-racism in your businesses & business support programs.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur or developing programs to support them, designing for inclusion will invite more people in, and help them to feel welcome once they’re there. It can’t be achieved overnight, and it won’t happen without commitment and some discomfort, but there are steps you can take – straight away.

Join us to hear from inclusion leaders about actionable strategies for building anti-racism and inclusivity into your business and programs.
