This session will explore the concept of ‘difference’ as compared with ‘normality’ within the framework of the 2012 Equalities Act of 2010, with a particular focus on the protected characteristics of race and religion.  It will investigate key terminology to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of injustice.  A short film will be viewed to explore the effect of religious stereotyping and ways in which we can challenge prejudice and discrimination will be considered.


By the end of the workshop session members will be able to:


  • Explain key definitions and concepts
  • Understand their role in relation to the Public Sector Equality Duty under the Equality Act 2010.
  • Understand the experience of difference for people with a legally protected characteristic – race and religion
  • Recognise how personal values and perceptions can inform unconscious bias and the potential impact in communities
  • Gain awareness of approaches they may use to challenge racial discrimination
