It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
This course will enable you and your organisation to feel more confident in understanding the difference between equality and diversity. This can then enable your organisation to recruit volunteers who can potentially bring along a vast amount of varied skills and knowledge that may support the skill set that you already have as well as boosting the services you provide.
Included in this course:
• The difference between equality and diversity;
• What is meant by the 'protected characteristics';
• The benefits of promoting diversity in your volunteer team;
• Overcoming barriers/stereotypes;
• How we can support you.
