Delivering Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Scotland’s Public, Private and Third Sectors
Thu 27th May 2021
OVERVIEW View Webinar Agenda
This webinar explores how the need to deliver equality, diversity and inclusion in Scotland’s public, private and Third sector organisations can be met, the challenges which need to be overcome to ensure that diversity is properly reflected in leadership and governance structures and the steps which must be taken to ensure that these ambitions are also reflected in the day to day running, culture and practices of organisations in all three sectors.
Complying with legislation which exists to provide protection against discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, race, gender, age, religion, cultural background and sexual orientation is one thing, actively and successfully promoting equality, diversity and inclusion is another. Supporting and reflecting the rights of people with protected characteristics is an obligation in equality law and a characteristic of successful organisations. Failure to do so is also reputationally damaging for both organisations and individuals. So how do organisations get it right?
What is the relationship between organisational effectiveness and promoting and achieving diversity, inclusion and equality? Which strategies and initiatives work and what is the most effective way to think about how to move your organisation forward? What is the best way to both promote a positive organisational culture and achieve diversity in leadership and organisational governance positions? What do organisations delivering well on diversity and inclusion look like?

I had attended the previous seminar which was why I attended this one too. The seminar was a reminder or refresher of what I already know. However I will take away some good points from today. It was good to learn more about the balance of views and rights and it was very interesting to get an insight into Tam's (Baillie) experiences as Children's Commissioner.
