Thursday 8th April, 2pm – 4pm
Following our successful session on sharing good practice we are holding another one. Over the last few months DAN members have had the opportunity to undertake Equality, Diversity and Inclusion training.
These sessions have covered
- bias – both personal and organisational
- how this affects decision making
- developing positive action
- leadership in inclusion
Upcoming workshops will focus on developing good practice and actions for each organisation.
This will include participants sharing progress they have made and any challenges they have faced.
There will also be a chance to discuss other examples of good practice and an opportunity to develop and refine organisational plans.
The facilitator for these sessions will be Kamaljit Poonia, who is a Diversity Consultant and Leadership Coach.
Kamaljit has worked on ED&I issues for over 15 years. She had headed ED&I teams in local authorities (Camden and Bristol), been a Diversity Advisor in the Civil Service (Department for International Development, Cabinet Office) and headed the ED&I team at the University of Southampton. She is also a trained and practicing coach. For the last three years Kamaljit has worked as an independent consultant with clients across the Arts and Cultural sector, Local authorities, and business sector.
