The discussion will include the following speakers:

Diversity and inclusion are widely used terms, but they can mean many things - more women, race equality, LGBT representation, people with disabilities, different educational backgrounds - and not everyone is comfortable using these terms in a fundraising or VCSE sector context. 

This webinar asks the question: what are we really talking about when we talk about diversity and inclusion? It will reflect on diversity and inclusion projects and the measures your organisation can take.

Speakers at the webinar are:

Wednesday, 1 July, 2020 - 17:00 to 18:00
