Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

People, policies and systems can hold unconscious bias, whether they mean to or not, and they can also reinforce inequalities, prejudice and discrimination. It’s more important than ever that we look at ways to make our organisations fairer, and we look at our own behaviour to make sure we are inclusive.

What is this course about?

This course connects our individual responsibility to challenge inequality and prejudice to the role of organisations and wider systems. It’s not about adding a subtle equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) policy to the list of governance documents, but properly applying the principles of EDI throughout. 

What will you learn?

  • Increase your understanding of and challenge your own assumptions about equality, diversity and inclusion. 
  • Identify practices that create and promote equality, and how organisations can contribute to wider change. 
  • Understand more about The Equality Act 2010 and its impact for the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector  
  • Better understand why equality, diversity and inclusion is important and its role in relation to your other policies 

Who is the course for?

Anyone that wants to consider EDI in their work, whether you're a trustee, director manager, staff member or volunteer, and play a positive part in challenging inequalities, prejudice and discrimination.
