Event Details

Gender Smart Talk


I would love to invite you to join for a Gender Smart Talk event online. 

This time we have a special guest: Colin Barnes - Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service on:

'Recruitment, Selection and Hiring for diversity - engaging the organisation' 

Over the past  years Colin Barnes has worked tirelessly to achieve better diversity, first in addition to his role as a PCO at Greater Manchester Police and over the last 2 years full time at Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service. His motivation: it works, "I have seen that on the beat the only way to get real results is by having people in the team who are representative of the people in the neighbourhood".

Over time his team has figured out what works to recruit, select and then integrate more diverse groups and is keen to share his learnings. Key ingredients of their approach are: connect with the target group and involve senior leaders.

Join us on line for a unique opportunity to hear what Colin Barnes and his team did that worked, which bumps they encountered on the road and where they are heading next.

And of course there will be plenty of time for your questions too!

Join to learn from others and get inspired.
