During this session, we will take a practical look at how you can challenge the structures that affect inequality within your organisation. We will look at a diversity auditing tool and how you can apply this to create organisational 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, and has developed equality, access and inclusion audit tools. 


What is this course about?

Over the last few months, COVID-19 has highlighted and exposed existing inequalities throughout society. This, followed by the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, has put challenging inequalities high on our agenda. Discussion about anti-racism has been thrown into the mainstream and we are having new conversations about how to create a more equal society.

Now is the time to look at our organisational practices, and how we can push the equality agenda, with all equalities groups forward.

During this session, we will walk through some practical steps, reflecting on our recent work through COVID-19 to take us forward to addressing inequality at a structural level and creating change within our organisations.

What will you learn?

This course will enable you to:

  • Know how to undertake a diversity audit
  • Know how to apply this to your organisational context
  • Be able to take practical steps in addressing inequality within your organisation

Who is this course for?

Staff and trustees with a responsibility for, or ability to impact, organisational change.

What else do you need to know?

You must have an understanding of the Equality Act 2010 and a commitment to equalities and change within your organisation.

To take part you will need a laptop with a camera, microphone, and Wi-Fi. You will not require any additional software. You will be emailed an invitation with a link to join the online training prior to the course.
