Event description
Get up to speed with diversity and equality - and what your group or organisation can do to make the world a better place.

About this event

All the talk about diversity and inclusion can sometimes be overwhelming. But there are some simple steps to get it right.

This short workshop will give you the key information - as well as plenty of time to ask questions and discuss the important issues.

There are good reasons - legal, moral and commercial - to make sure you get it right. On this workshop you will learn about these, as well as what you can do to protect and promote your group or organisation.

The course will cover the basic principles of equality and how to embed them in your organisation and day-to-day work - it has been designed for staff, volunteers and trustees, irrespective of experience or seniority.

Course Aims

  • To explore the meaning of equality, diversity and inclusion
  • To introduce The Equality Act 2010 and the equality duties it sets out
  • To look at and discuss the language we use and ways we talk about people with protected characteristics
  • To discuss the importance of equality issues for your organisation and its effectiveness

Coure Outcomes

By the end of the course participants will have:

  • Developed a better understanding of the meaning of and issues surrounding equality and diversity
  • Considered the basic principles of equality, and how they can be embedded in our organisations as well as our day-to-day work
  • Discussed the 9 protected characteristics and 8 types of discrimination
  • Taken the first steps to developing an action plan for carrying forward what we have learned
