The BCCI DE&I Action Champion Network is rooted in earlier projects by The British Chamber of Commerce for Italy starting in 2016 focusing on the topic which brought together a multitude of companies, institutions, associations and individuals. Based on earlier experiences and building on the success obtained from the previous initiatives, the Chamber decided to raise the bar and pursuit the goal of making a large scale impact on DE&I with an entirely different approach and paradigm. The Action Champion Network focuses on two key elements:
• concrete actions that contribute to promoting inclusion and to fostering the unique qualities of each individual;
• approach the topic with a holistic model which assumes that individuals should not be labeled and categorized on the basis of what distinguishes them from the “norm” (average), but rather recognized as all being unique and similar at the same time.
- Observatory on some key indicators
- Self-discipline protocol for inclusion
- Training and sharing within the Group
- Training and informative sessions open to the public
