|Welcome to the 109th episode of the award-winning Diverse Minds podcast. In today’s episode, I am going to be talking about creating culturally inclusive meetings for National Inclusion Week.

- Diversity is having a seat at an important meeting and seeing people from different backgrounds, different levels in the organisation, with different perspectives sitting around this table.
- Sending notes and meeting information in advance to all team members is super useful.
- Printing on cream or off-white paper really does reduce glare for all and it’s particularly good practice for anyone who has dyslexia, or is on the neurodivergent spectrum.
- Make sure that your minutes are clear and succinct.
- When you set your times for your meetings, consider the impact it might have on carers or anyone with any type of caring responsibilities.
