Change starts together – supporting the Power of Inclusion initiative

The Lord Mayor’s Appeal brings together businesses, neighbouring communities, employees, and charities to find solutions to some of London’s most pressing societal issues.

Our vision is to create A Better City for All, one that is Inclusive, Healthy, Skilled and Fair, helping 1 million people to thrive. Through our work we have a transformational impact on people’s lives.

The Lord Mayor’s Appeal’s Power of Inclusion aims to create a City that is inclusive and open to everyone regardless of background. London is one of the most diverse cities in the world, yet many people face significant barriers to getting a job or progressing their careers in the City, because of their background.

Alderman William Russell, Lord Mayor of the City of London 2019-2021, said –

Change Starts Together is an excellent new storytelling campaign, which supports the vision of The Lord Mayor’s Appeal Power of Inclusion initiative. It has been proven that inclusive workplaces are more productive, with improved performance. Our storytelling campaign encourages businesses to create a culture of belonging and acceptance for those from diverse socio-economic backgrounds. Change Starts Together starts a much-needed conversation between individuals and businesses to increase diversity and inclusion in the City.
