What was The Inclusivity Project?
The Inclusivity Project was collaboration of perspectives, bringing the academic view and the small business voices into conversation with the lived experience of local membership organisations.
We have tackled the employment gap from 3 perspectives.
By engaging with businesses
We worked with small local businesses to understand their perspective on inclusive recruitment and retention. And innovate new solutions.
We can understand this situation through data, economics, systems. Sometimes you can predict and test change scenarios this way too.
Our aim was to be part of the thinking that took place at a national level. We aimed to help shape how government could support, and learn from, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.
"Retirement age" is a thing of the past - so who are we talking about, when we mention "older people" of working age? What kinds of fixed ideas do we encounter?
