Amrit Nijjar is Inclusion & Belonging Manager at Tarmac.
In this tenth episode of the Candid Comms podcast, we talk candidly about her work.
Amrit shared advice to help Internal Communicators think about the importance of inclusion and belonging.
She also revealed what her company has been doing, including an internal campaign and launching communities. I know you’ll leave this episode full of bright ideas and things to remember, you’ll want a notepad to hand for this one.
