Events

Our learning events are often described as thought-provoking, in that we encourage debate by challenging assumptions and encouraging participants to re-evaluate their ways of working. Of course all of our courses, workshops and webinars can be customised to suit your company. Often this will mean linking your mission statement or key performance indicators to diversity principles in order to get buy-in from your people. In this way our work will enhance your business performance.

Next Workshop

Diversity – Calculating the Return on Investment

Tuesday 13th January 2015

9.30 to 4pm

Workshop summary

Diversity, equality and inclusion are generally thought of as a ‛good thing’; claims that diversity is good for business are often made, but too often not substantiated with bottom-line evidence. This workshop will show that diversity initiatives have tangible and quantifiable benefits, that can be communicated to stakeholders and customers. Using case studies that are based on real-life business scenarios, delegates will learn the processes to calculate diversity’s return on investment in your business.

By the end of the workshop, delegates will:

  • Learn to use business tools to measure, assess and evaluate diversity’s contribution to business performance.
  • Understand the complete range of costs incurred and benefits derived from investing in diversity.
  • Learn and apply a model of diversity as a value for money business proposition, rather than an HR or bureaucratic exercise.
  • Be able to communicate the diversity business case in clear business terms, to stakeholders and general audiences, persuasively, consistently and at the right level for different audiences.
  • Be confident and equipped to influence colleagues as advocates for the diversity business case.

How to Do Equality Analysis

The Equality Act 2010 imposes a broad legal requirement, known as the Equality Duty, on all organisations providing public services. The public sector equality duty therefore applies to all organisations that provide public functions. This includes, for example, a private sector company that “looks after” prisoners or a charity that runs a care home. These organisations have to demonstrate how they have shown due regard to the three aims of the public sector equality duty: to end discrimination and harassment, to foster good relations, and to promote equality of opportunity.

Participants are encouraged to bring any analyses or assessments that they are currently completing.

Course includes:

  • Re-branding equality impact assessments as equality analyses, equality assurance or equality statements
  • Pros and cons of using statistics to conduct equality analyses
  • Effective consultations
  • Engaging with hard-to-reach communities
  • Practical case studies
  • Review of current best practice and relevant case law including Brown principles

A comprehensive handout will accompany this event.
