Global leader in online vehicle remarketing and recycling Copart UK has announced that it will be taking part in National Inclusion Week 2021.
National Inclusion Week, running from September 27th to October 3rd 2021, was created by Inclusive Employers who organise the campaign each year. The week aims to raise awareness of inclusion in the workplace.
Now in its ninth year, the 2021 theme for National Inclusion Week is United For Inclusion. It is about bringing people and organisations together to share learning and best practice so we can work together to reach our shared goal of making inclusion an everyday reality.
Amongst the activities, Copart has planned for National Inclusion Week are company-wide participation in the National Inclusion Week Quiz 2021 and a roll-out of the NIW United for Inclusion workshops to their management team, to incorporate into their weekly team meetings and briefing sessions.
Jane Pocock, Managing Director of Copart UK & Ireland, said:
“Copart has a culture that welcomes diversity and champions equal opportunities. With around 1,200 teammates across 19 UK locations, our workforce, customers, and the communities that we work in are unique, diverse, and multi-cultural.
We are continually seeking to improve what we do and how we do it. National Inclusion Week has given us the perfect opportunity to unite our teammates and encourage open and productive conversations around inclusion issues, so we can raise awareness and make positive changes where needed.”
Rupert Moyne, Managing Director – Corporate Services, Inclusive Employers, said:
“I’m delighted that Copart is joining employers around the world by taking part in National Inclusion Week 2021.
The last year has really brought the need for inclusion into sharp focus. Many of us have spent the past twelve months working remotely and I, therefore, hope that United For Inclusion, the 2021 theme of National Inclusion Week, brings us closer to our colleagues and other organisations as we together celebrate, share and inspire inclusion practices.
Copart’s involvement in National Inclusion Week shows that they take building an inclusive workplace seriously and I welcome their commitment to do so.”
In 2020, nearly 2,000 organisations took part in National Inclusion Week through internal events and activities covering a wide range of workplace inclusion topics, as well as webinars and daily challenges from Inclusive Employers.
