Inclusive Networks is all about celebrating and promoting diversity and inclusion.
Inclusive Networks was launched at the end of 2014 – with a good luck message from British icon Stephen Fry. We celebrate the achievements of workplace and community network groups and celebrate and promote diversity and inclusion via our award- winning website (Mumpreneur Gold Award) and thriving social media platforms. We also host our own innovative events, our own reward and recognition initiatives and we actively support other organisations events and initiatives and contribute to industry research and resource guides.
Since 2015 we have celebrated the work of and supported over 150 network groups who champion diversity and inclusion all over the UK – it’s important to celebrate. We have also contributed to events hosted by organisations including the University of Bradford, Adidas and InterEngineering.
In February 2016 is was announced that Inclusive Networks was shortlisted for the ‘Charity/Community Initiative of the Year’ awards at the 2016 British LGBT Awards.

Inclusive Networks is about giving network groups, charities, businesses and brands a platform to authentically showcase their work to an engaged and targeted audience. We shine a light on role models.
It’s important that businesses and brands understand multiple identities amongst their staff and customers. We can’t be shortsighted.
Understanding that people don’t just fit into one group is vital – not just so businesses grasp the complexities of their employees’ and customers’ experiences but also to ensure they aren’t typecast or stereotyped in any way. This is an area where there is a lot of work still to be done.
It’s integral that we avoid looking at things as standalone and we look at the further issues which people who identify with more than one protected characteristic face (sexuality, race, religion, disability…). We celebrate all diversity strands.
25,000+ followers, reaching over 500,000 people every month. This makes Inclusive Networks one of the most followed and engaged diversity organisations on social media.
