National Inclusion Week

NABS unites with adland for National Inclusion Week

NABS is celebrating National Inclusion Week, which takes place from 27 September to 3 October 2021. This important event shines a light on inclusion in our everyday lives, however it occurs.

At NABS, we’re passionate about creating an industry that’s truly inclusive. We constantly work to make sure that our services can support everybody in adland, whatever their background. We work closely with partners including MEFA, Outvertising and Brixton Finishing School to make sure that we can fully help people from underrepresented groups. We also advocate for a more inclusive industry, and we make sure that the NABS team receive training to help them better understand the issues around inclusion.

This year’s National Inclusion Week theme is #UnitedForInclusion. So we’ve got together some of our fantastic friends and partners across the industry to tell their stories of inclusion. Watch our video below for revealing insights into what support and inclusion really look like. You’re sure to pick up some practical tips on how you can start to create a more inclusive workplace.
