Open Doors Initiative Podcast Series

The series comes with toolkits to help workers and businesses during the COVID-19 crisis
Open Doors Initiative Podcast Series

The following are a series of podcasts which began during COVID-19. Their aim is to help people in all aspects of employment during this time and into the future. They feature experts in various areas including mental health, diversity and inclusion, employers and trade unions and those from marginalised groups.

We will be adding to these over time and hope you find them to be of use.

If there is a topic you would like to hear discussed, please let us know by contacting info@opendoorsinitiative.ie
