In May 2022 Arts Council Ireland presented a new Equality, Diveristy and Inclusion (EDI) Toolkit – which supports organisations in implementing positive policy measures to promote equality of opportunity, access and outcomes for everyone living in Ireland.
Over this interactive Zoom session, Hannah Gordis – arts administrator and member of the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Working Group at the Arts Council – will give you a step-by-step guide to the new EDI Toolkit, including case studies and insights.
The session will run on Tuesday 27 September, beginning at 11 am and will last approximately 1 hour. This workshop is free and hosted exclusively for ISACS members.
