We all know that equality and diversity are about providing real and equal opportunities for everyone and respecting our differences, but we might not know how best to achieve that without turning it into a tick box exercise. That’s why we have Noeleen Hartigan – Multidisciplinary Arts Strategy Advisor and Human Rights expert to help start this important conversation and guide us through these important topics.
Over the course of 1 Zoom session, Noeleen will take you various points of discussion such as what Equality, Diversity and Inclusion means, the human right to participate in culture, what to consider when implementing a diversity strategy and answer any other burning questions that you may have.
The sessions will run on Tuesday 23 November, beginning at 11 am and will last approximately 1.5 hours. The workshops are free and exclusively for ISACS members.
