Diversity and inclusion – Equality, access and inclusion audit
This session looks at equality, diversity and inclusion in your organisation. We will take a practical approach, supporting you to review and audit your organisation, including your environment and space, communication, and how you work with staff and clients.
What is this course about?
This is a practical session on how to assess your organisation's approach to equality, access and inclusion. We will go through some practical steps, reflecting on your recent work through COVID-19, then look at addressing inequality at a structural level and creating change in your organisation.
This is not a tick box exercise - it's a real commitment to continue the conversation and work in your organisation to create real and lasting change.
Stephanie Champion is a freelance trainer specialising in equality and diversity. With a background in youth and community work, she has 15 years' experience working with equalities organisations both in Bristol and Manchester. Stephanie has developed an equality, access and inclusion audit tool.
Why is the course relevant now?
The events of 2020 (such as Black Lives Matter and COVID-19) highlighted the impact of inequality in society, and the structures that keep inequality in place.
Individual organisations can't change systems on their own, but they can start by working to ensure their own practices are as equal and inclusive as possible.
By starting to identify and eliminate barriers to equality, then put in place the measures that create and promote equity, organisations can contribute to the wider change and lead by example.
What will you learn?
This course will help you:
• Take a diversity audit.
• Apply your audit to your organisation.
• Take practical measures to address inequality in your organisation.
Who is the course for?
Staff and trustees responsible for change in an organisation, or able to make an impact on change.
