Cancer makes no distinction in terms of age, color, socio-economic background, gender, etc. In short, it affects everyone. To reach everyone, both minority and majority groups, it is important that the organization is inclusively diverse. With diversity and inclusion as expertise, UPOP is working together with Kom op tegen Kanker to be there for everyone.
In order to make a connection with a broader and more diverse target group, it is important that the organization is internally inclusive and diverse. To be there for everyone starts from within. We were therefore commissioned by this organization to help shape their five-year plan for an inclusive operation. Their strategic plan of action for the next 5 years covers the following areas:
HR: Recruitment to retention
Inclusive job redesign
Learning & development
Research internally and externally using focus groups, desk research, etc.
UPOP audit: baseline measurement of diversity and inclusion → UPOP’s roadmap to become an inclusive workplace
Skills assessment: mapping the diversity competencies
Developing a personalized training offer for the entire organization, e.g. all employees, team leaders, management and volunteers.
