Shaping Inclusion & Diversity: Inclusion Strategies for NAs

A practical guide to creating inclusion and diversity strategy for National Agencies. The booklet contains ideas on how to make the most of your (limited) resources to have lots of inclusion impact. It's is accompanied by the podcast.

The 2021-2027 programme places a strong focus on social inclusion and ushers in a period of change for National Agencies and their work on inclusion. New roles and new demands have created a need for a more strategic approach. For this purpose, SALTO Inclusion & Diversity Resource Centre decided to update this publication, originally published in 2007. 

What is "strategy"? What is involved in developing a strategy specifically on inclusion & diversity? How do you know if your NA actually needs an inclusion strategy? These and other questions are addressed in this booklet.

Shaping Inclusion & Diversity de-mystifies strategy and encourages NAs to take a more strategic approach to inclusion. The booklet presents a step-by-step approach which NAs can use to develop their own national-level inclusion & diversity strategies. In this way NAs can maximise the results and impact of their inclusion work.

Booklet aims to make strategy development more attractive and accessible. The approach and methods described here are not only relevant to the field of inclusion but can be used by anyone in almost any context.

This publication is accompanied by the Shaping Inclusion and Diversity Podcast (7 episodes) that highlights the concepts, connects you with first-hand experience and guides you through the process of creating a Inclusion and Diversity Strategy.

Use the publication & podcast how it best fits your needs: as a step-by-step approach to follow or as a resource to consult on specific elements of the strategy building process. 
Please note that the podcast is complementary to this booklet. Whilst both the publication and the podcast can be enjoyed on their own, we recommend interacting with the topic through both forms.
