Working to Make Equality Happen

Institute of Equality & Diversity Practitioners’ free seminar

This seminar (the 4th) will explore how we can develop effective strategies to counter racism in all of its forms in ways that are effective within our professional practice. Our purpose in bringing together a range of speakers is to help delegates to be clear about what the protected characteristic of race means in 2014.

The Equality Act 2010, like preceding legislation, covers colour, nationality and ethnic or national origin. The IEDP is seeking to establish that the category ‘race’ does not have, or need, a hierarchy. Anyone who is treated less favourably because of their colour, nationality or ethnic origin is provided with protection under the law. Some groups of people are systematically targeted for abuse and discrimination. In recognising the different manifestations of racism we aim to combat them all and advance equality.

Panel of Speakers:

Lord Herman Ouseley - Member of House of Lords and Chair of Kick it Out

Malcolm Wilson - Traveller and Head of Virtual School

Pragna Patel - Director of Southall Black Sisters

Ila Chandavarkar - Women’s Resource Centre

Paul Stephenson - OBE Anti-racist campaigner

The format of the day will ensure active participation of delegates as well as keynote speakers.

Please book your place by filling a booking form available from IEDP's website.

Places are free and will be allocated on a first come first served basis - booking is essential.

The IEDP is grateful to Awards for All and for funding for this series of seminars.
