Making small nudges for big impact. It's everyone’s business to drive inclusivity. Taking action individually and making small steps in the right direction to create change – Each for Equal. It’s not enough for us to wait for a strategy, a policy, a system, a new leadership team, its our day to day individual behaviour that can amount to a lot, irrespective of the role we have to play, the level at which we operate at and whether we manage others or not. Our actions can leave a footprint that inspires, encourages, provokes thought or calls others to act.
