OUR AIMS & OBJECTIVES
The 3 C's
We are passionate about being a voice for ethnic diversity and equality at NEXT. To ensure that we are continually achieving this, we have designed a community to create an open and safe space for education (Champion), discussion (Connect) and celebration (Celebration) of employees from underrepresented ethnic backgrounds across the business.
We call this the 3 C's and you can read more about them below.
To collaborate with HR on efforts to:
Determine a clear commitment to supporting ethnic and cultural diversity within the business through improving the existing Diversity and Inclusion Policy.
To raise awareness of aspects of our behaviours that affect those around us such as unconscious bias through employee training.
Champion talent from underrepresented backgrounds.
To be a safe space and supportive environment for employees from underrepresented ethnic backgrounds to socialise and engage in open and honest conversations.
Create a welcoming and open community which provides a platform for employees from all backgrounds and their allies to ask questions, educate themselves and learn from each other.
Build a supporting and encouraging environment for people to celebrate their respective events, festivals and cultures with their colleagues and the wider business.
Educate the wider business both internally and externally about key cultural holidays, celebrations and their meanings through activities, events and awareness campaigns.
