The changing face of equalities

This one day event run by Community Works aims to explore the complexity of equality, diversity, identity and human rights issues whether you are new to these issues or have been working with them for a good while.

The day will include a chance to get to know the Equalities Act (2010). There will also be discussion to help participants develop a deeper understanding of current issues, including: identity politics, cultural appropriation, poverty, justice, fairness, law, policy and procedure, rights and responsibilities.

The day is aimed at anyone from the voluntary and community sector who wants to develop their understanding further, and share their experiences. By the end of this session, participants will:

  • have advanced their knowledge on the issues relating to equalities
  • have gained greater understanding and awareness of the complexities around the ‘equalities agenda’
