Training for Equality Steering Group Members or Champions

 

One Day Course for Equality/Diversity Champions or Equality Steering Group Members


Which of these statements reflects your organisation's approach to equality and diversity?

 

  • One designated staff member or a small unit handling all the issues?
  • A staff colleague having the equality/diversity portfolio "bolted on" to their existing busy workload?

In consequence, many organisations bring in external trainers and consultants to help share the burden.But there is a better, more cost effective and sustainable approach to equality and diversity policy implementation. Spread the load! And our one day course can help you - together with a 12 month after care service included in the delegate price! - spread the load.

 

There is a growing trend to spread ownership of the equality and diversity agenda in the workplace with the appointment of equality/diversity champions or advocates, instead of relying on one designated officer or an over burdened member of staff with “bolt on” responsibilities for the portfolio.Some of our clients also use Equality Steering Groups. 

Whichever of these models you have in place,our one day training course helps participants to:-

  • Determine a realistic role or job description for their champion or steering group roles and remits.
  • Set clear boundaries of operation
  • Acquire the technical skills to undertake the job effectively
  • Arrange and hold a one to one meeting with someone seeking help, using a wide range of communication and other techniques
  • Promote the equality and diversity agenda in a sustained but proportionate way right across your corporate activities

The course comes with a powerful toolkit ready made for use in your new duties.The toolkit is suitable for a wide range of duties  which for you might include all or some of the following:-

  • Policy implementation
  • Training others
  • Being an ambassador or representative of the organisation
  • Advocacy
  • Acting as a Contact Person
  • Quality Assurance

The course also comes with a 12 month after care service. Contact us for full details today!
