DIVERSITY CALENDAR 2023
Improves visibility of diverse groups in the workplace
Supports EDI strategies and action plans
Provides key dates for your organisation to mark
Why do you need the 2023 Diversity Calendar?
We believe that making improvements to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion cannot be achieved in isolation.
It requires a commitment to understanding the barriers that face diverse groups of people, and to support the building blocks that enable staff to be confident and capable of being inclusive every day.
We created the 2023 Diversity Calendar to:
Improve visibility of important cultural dates throughout the year
To act as a nudge to acknowledge and appreciate people that are different to us.
To encourage people to learn about the history of the calendar dates and their significance to peoples lives.
Use the calendar to increase visibility and starting discussions in your workplace about opportunities to be more inclusive.

About the Diversity Calendar 2023
Who needs this calendar?
We believe everyone should be aware of the key cultural dates throughout the year that promote inclusion. Whether you are a CEO, HR professional, or are a tem leader, it’s important that you give yourself the information you need to plan and learn about the different opportunities to promote and celebrate throughout the year.
How can I get the best out of the calendar?
Download the calendar and upload it to your intranet EDI pages, or print a copy for your office or staff room. The calendar is a great talking point as you explore the number of opportunities to promote inclusion that exist throughout the year.
It’s also a useful tool to schedule events or discussions and improving your awareness of people from different backgrounds. The list of events isn’t exhaustive; however, this calendar can be used as a starting point for your workplace.
