Innovations to enhance inclusion for academic staff who have caring commitments outside the workplace

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Across the United Kingdom, many individuals of working age are unpaid carers, experiencing challenges in balancing the demands of their employment with their caring commitments. As part of equality, diversity and inclusion enhancement activity, a study was conducted to explore the experiences of academics in a university in the North of England who had ongoing caring commitments outside of the workplace. This presentation aims to share the key findings of this study, identify implications for practice that have relevance and transferability to other similar individuals and contexts, and propose a range of innovations to facilitate and enhance inclusion practices.
