Event Details

A day of informal discussions about diversity and the potential damage of discrimination experienced by many older gay and lesbian citizens. Equality South West’s Chief Executive Katie Pratt will start off the day with highlights from their survey, “Pride Progress & Transformation”. Members of BU’s LGB Research Advisory Committee will be on hand to informally share their experiences of working on BU projects. A screening of the award winning, Bournemouth produced short film, Rufus Stone will follow Rufus Stone the movie blog.

The big event of the day is the launch the Method Deck, Methods to Diversity – a learning tool to inspire agencies, practitioners and communities to think about diversity within their ageing population. Methods to Diversity contains information, practical tips and exercises to help agencies and communities think creatively about their approach to working with older lesbian and gay people.

The event is free, including lunch and a set of the Methods to Diversity cards. A small amount is available for us to reimburse travel expenses with receipts if needed, but please come ‘on your own steam’ if possible.
