Equality, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion training
As part of our commitment to inclusivity, we have launched the first of our EDI training sessions to gain a better understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). This is vital information that we will use to improve research applications, support clients, create and develop policies and strategies that will bring benefit to people within health and social care. If you would like to submit items or news for us to include in future bulletins, please send
to Louise Ward or Jo Welsman.
The first training session will be held on Tuesday 28th March from 9:30am – 11:00am and we hope that staff and public contributors can all make it. The training is being provided by The Diversity Trust, specialists in equality, diversity, equity and inclusion. The training will be facilitated by Dr Lateesha Osbourne online via Zoom. It is an introductory course which explores the key themes of Equality, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. It includes analysis of these key themes and what they mean in practice.
It will include an overview of equalities legislation, explore some of the barriers faced by equalities communities and groups and provide an opportunity to embed the course learning into practice. It will be particularly useful for those who have no previous equalities training experience or are requiring a refresher. If you would like to attend, please let us know via this Doodle Poll and we will send you the Zoom link nearer the time. Alternatively you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org
