Call to Action for An Inclusive World

Inclusive means entrepreneurship is open and easily accessible to all. It levels the playing field and allows entrepreneurs to seek, create and participate in opportunities, especially those facing barriers to the workplace.

As an organisation, we have a commitment towards innovation within inclusive communities.  Together we are creating the 2030 Agenda Paradigm Shift tasked of us in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - where communities start to see people who face barriers, not as burdens, but as contributing citizens who bring a new and exciting presence to the table.

The resultant contribution to the growth of the economy from such enterprise is what we term Inclusive Economic Growth.

Over the last few years we have been working hard at bringing this task to fruition - through the Inclusive Entrepreneur Programme we run as an organisation, and the various Calls to Action, debates and events we have held.

Founder and CEO Jacqueline Winstanley is a recognised author, speaker and contributor to academic work and thought leadership, regularly participating in UN and Windsor Consulatations, academic research and papers and business webinars. (Please click here for a detailed list of published work and public speaking events.)

As Jacqueline says, "I have a comprehensive audit trail in terms of proof of concept and outcomes dating back to 1995, influencing changes in Government policy and developing national guidelines for good practice."

During our events, we heard from #Inclusive #Entrepreneurs, launched our digital platform showcasing their businesses, and collated evidence of their journeys towards entrepreneurship.

This evidence will feed into a White Paper and other policy changing documents that support our Call to Action in respect of business support requirements going forward.

Following are a few examples of our Call to Action and recommendations to Government.


The following recommendations have been made by Universal Inclusion to the Chancellor & DWP.
