We all want our project to feel welcoming and to be truly representative of the communities that we work in. However, sometimes understanding the barriers to participation that some people will face to encourage diverse participation in project work can feel daunting. In this session we will explore the key themes of equality, diversity, equity and inclusion, so you can design a project that feels accessible to everyone.
You will learn:
Develop an understanding of the key themes and what they mean in practice.
Get an overview of equalities legislation.
Explore some of the barriers faced by communities and groups.
How to embed the key themes into practice.
