Embrace is a thought leadership consultancy which develops programmes to support governments and organisations in the implementation of values-led policies and practices contributing to good governance, social cohesion and social responsibility agendas.

Social cohesion is increasingly high on the legislative and administrative horizon of many countries: the OECD defines social cohesion as a society working towards the well-being of all its members, fights exclusion and marginalisation, creates a sense of belonging, promotes trust and offers members the opportunity for advancement.

Embrace understands that tangible and visible good practices and fairness in critical areas like employment, access to services, and good governance is essential in promoting social cohesion. Bonds forged from shared values including equity, equality, fairness, and inclusion, will link people, families, and communities together and provide the strength and clarity of purpose for citizens to confront and overturn the negative forces of self-interest, corruption, and division which undermine the cohesion of the nation.

Values

societyA

Effective governance combines good processes and practices that coordinate and control a nation’s or an organisation’s resources and actions, with a values-led framework that embraces ethics, sustainability, equity, accountability, transparency as well rules and regulations: it extends to behaviours or morality. Processes without comprehension and commitment will not establish a truly cohesive nation, or a socially responsible organisation

Our programmes reward and recognise achievement through formal accreditation. Our methodology includes practical support, training, inspection, audit and regular monitoring leading to regular re-accreditation. Our schemes are designed to be transparent and efficient, embodying good governance.




Clear vision
