What did we talk about?
We were funded by the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills to create a new Diversity Toolkit as part of the Gateways to the Professions Programme.
There was an emerging consensus that steps needed to be taken to develop effective policies and practices in relation to equality and diversity. Through our research, we created the Diversity Toolkit as the answer to the question, "How can professional bodies embed awareness and support for diversity?"
The Diversity Toolkit helps professional bodies learn from the experiences of others and implement change within their organisation.
What did we find?
Members: download the Diversity Toolkit & report, 'Embedding Awareness and Support for Diversity', from your Members Area for free! You'll find it under the Equality & Diversity heading in your free reports.
"We aim to ensure that equality and diversity issues are integral to all our activities - a routine part of our organisational business planning activities. This will apply to all work, not only those areas where there are obvious equality and diversity dimensions."
