Event description
Hustings for Equity's Scottish National Committee

About this event

As part of the campaigns for the Equity Committee Elections 2021, Equity is hosting a series of online hustings events for the contested committees to allow candidates to address Equity members, and make the case for their candidacy. The hustings for our Scottish National Committee will take place on Tuesday 22 June at 18.00.

The hustings will involve speeches from each of the attending candidates, followed by a Q&A session, giving you the opportunity to put questions to the candidates. You can submit questions before the event by emailing elections@equity.org.uk. Please specify which committee hustings the question is for in the subject line of your email.

We recommend members submit questions in advance for the best chance of their questions being asked. Questions can be submitted during the hustings but there is no guarantee they will be asked, due to the time constraints of the event. Please note that which questions are asked, as well as which candidates are asked to answer them, will remain at the discretion of the chair, to ensure all candidates have equal opportunities to speak.

Candidates and audience members are reminded of Equity's Safe Spaces Statement:

“Every single one of us working on this project is entitled to work in a safe space: a space free of fear, a space free of bullying and harassment of any kind. We will work together honouring our differences and celebrating the gifts we each bring to the table.

“We will treat one another with politeness and respect at all times and, if we are subjected to or witness bullying and harassment, we will speak out knowing that our voices will be heard and we will be taken seriously. Together we can create a safe space.”

This means no personal attacks of any sort will be tolerated, as set out in the union’s policy on campaigning in elections.

We want these hustings to be fully inclusive and accessible. If you have any access needs, including the need for a BSL interpreter, please email Kate on kjones@equity.org.uk. Captioning is available for any meeting you attend via Otter AI by clicking on the link on the top left hand corner of the Zoom screen.
