3 Mottos for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Course Content Diversity takes a wide variety of visible and invisible forms – many more than the nine Protected Characteristics of the Equality Act (race, religion & belief, disability etc). A staff team composed of people from many backgrounds and identities, with varied personalities, skills and perspectives, has many advantages. But these differences can also be a source of misunderstanding, division and even hostility. Similarly in our work with customers or service users we often overlook unintentional discrimination because of the differences between our life experiences.
Three mottos…In this interactive workshop, delegates will consider three models, summarised in simple phrases, that provide insight on our interactions with those from different groups and experiences. They provide touchstones to aid empathy and improve equality & inclusion.
Through discussion of different case studies, we’ll consider: the role of the dominant identity in the organisation and society as a whole; why some people ignore or deny the disadvantages that others experience; and how to respond to misunderstandings or offence.
- Defining ‘equality’, ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’
- The role of the dominant identity and ‘human neutral’
- Which aspects of diversity are protected by law and why?
- Identifying unintentional discrimination and why it is often hidden from us
- Separating intention from impact in communication and responding to offence
Not just focusing on Religion & Belief
During the course our discussions will focus on many aspects of diversity, not just religion and belief.
