Equality & Diversity Workshop

18 August @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

£16.76

We live in an increasingly diverse society and need to be proactive in making sure we recognise and respect each other’s differences. Our volunteer teams should reflect the communities they support however we know that some groups are still underrepresented. This workshop looks at ways to address that imbalance and ensure that we are capturing meaningful data to evidence our improvement – without falling into the trap of becoming a tick-box exercise. We will also look at language and terminology and help you to feel confident engaging without fear of causing offence or feeling uncomfortable. This workshop draws on recommended practice from local organisations including the LGBT Foundation, SABLE (Staffordshire Association for Black Lives Equality), StAND (Stoke-on-Trent Area Network for Disability) and Trans-Staffordshire.

The training will take place via Zoom and will be around 2 hours with a short break in between. A link will be sent to you prior to the training. If you have any queries please contact via email: kelly.smith@vast.org.uk
