About this event

Low Cost - In order to cover the costs of our training provision, we charge the low price of £35 per delegate.

3 Mottos for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Course Content Diversity takes a wide variety of visible and invisible forms – many more than the nine Protected Characteristics of the Equality Act (race, religion & belief, disability etc). A staff team composed of people from many backgrounds and identities, with varied personalities, skills and perspectives, has many advantages. But these differences can also be a source of misunderstanding, division and even hostility. Similarly in our work with customers or service users we often overlook unintentional discrimination because of the differences between our life experiences.

Three mottos...In this interactive workshop, delegates will consider three models, summarised in simple phrases, that provide insight on our interactions with those from different groups and experiences. They provide touchstones to aid empathy and improve equality & inclusion.

Through discussion of different case studies, we’ll consider: the role of the dominant identity in the organisation and society as a whole; why some people ignore or deny the disadvantages that others experience; and how to respond to misunderstandings or offence.

Course topics

  • Defining ‘equality’, ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’
  • The role of the dominant identity and ‘human neutral’
  • Which aspects of diversity are protected by law and why?
  • Identifying unintentional discrimination and why it is often hidden from us
  • Separating intention from impact in communication and responding to offence

Not just focusing on Religion & Belief

During the course our discussions will focus on many aspects of diversity, not just religion and belief.

Note - some of the content of this course is also covered in our short sessions entitled 'Advantage is invisible - understanding unintentional discrimination' and 'Intention versus impact - exploring group labels & unintended offence'. Those two courses are essentially the first and second halves of this course. So if you have already attended those sessions you are of course welcome to come for a refresher, just be advised there will be a lot of similarity!

Who Is The Course For?

The training is intended for anyone whose work (or life) brings them into contact with diverse people - whether service users, customers or colleagues.  

The course will be held online, over Zoom. We will provide the link to join the course after booking. Please get in touch if you have any access needs or want to discuss the course.
