RSA Fellows are invited to join Jen Scarlett FRSA for a free webinar to launch (In)Credible’s new report 'Invisible Development'. The report shares the results of a survey of over 1,000 caregivers on the credible and transferable skills they’ve developed through these roles.

This ground-breaking report by (In)Credible shows parents, guardians and unpaid carers developed skills, such as empathy, stress tolerance and communication. Previous research has shown these are some of the most important skills required by employers. A recent study by Catalyst highlighted when leaders were empathetic, people felt they were more likely to be innovative, engaged and stay with their organisation. The World Economic Forum has also noted these skills amongst the top most important for future business success.

So why are so many of us still viewing caring experience as ‘time out’?

(In)Credible are working with employers, caregivers and thought-leaders to re-imagine how we view caring experience and positively impact the careers of those who care.

If you are passionate about creating a more diverse and inclusive workforce or a caregiver interested in how you can redefine your caring experience, please join (In)Credible on Wednesday 24 November. We’ll be joined by a panel of experts:

Shurron Rosales, a mother to two children, one of whom has complex needs. Shurron has developed numerous skills as a caregiver.

Dr. Tracy Brower, a PhD sociologist, and author of 'The Secrets to Happiness at Work' and 'Bring Work to Life'. She is a principal with Steelcase’s Applied Research + Consulting group and a contributor to Forbes.com and Fast Company.

Charlotte Hill OBE, previously Chief Executive of 'Step Up To Serve', Charlotte is an RSA Fellow and was instrumental in the movement to view volunteering as credible experience with a deserved place on CVs.

Join (In)Credible at The Empathy Bootcamp: Why caregiving should be seen as real experience rather than ‘time out’ on Wednesday 24 November 2021 at 2:30pm-4:00pm GMT. You can register for the free webinar here.
