This course was an interactive and engaging exploration of equality, diversity and inclusion.  It covered personal awareness of the issues, as well as looking at how and why they are relevant for your organisation.  It included case studies of what other organisations do and discuss best practice.

The day gave participants an opportunity to consider equality, diversity and inclusion from different perspectives, including

  • personal awareness of the relevance of diversity
  • an understanding of equality legislation
  • exclusion: how it arises, how it impacts upon people, and what can be done about it
  • unconscious bias: how it arises, what the impact can be and how it can be reduced, how this can impact the work of community and voluntary organisations


This course was led by trainer Jess Taylor from The Equality Academy.
