Peer To Peer Series: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion In Your Organisation
What can I expect from the peer to peer Group?
• Peer led – the structure and content of the sessions will be shaped according to the group’s priorities and interests
• Lots of discussion – plenty of opportunities to get to know each other, share learning, experiences and challenges, and find ways to work together and support each other
• Engaging learning content – delivered by organisations with experience of groundbreaking EDI work, including My Life My Choice
• Accessible – we want to make sure that this EDI peer to peer is inclusive, so please let us know how we can make the sessions work for you.
Who is it for?
It’s aimed at people who work in charities, social enterprises and purposeful businesses in Oxfordshire. If you’re committed to doing more in your organisation to further equality, diversity and inclusion, whether EDI is the main focus of your role, or it's something you’re weaving into everything you do, then this is for you!
We’re all committed to making sure EDI is at the heart of our organisations and our work to make Oxfordshire better for everyone – but there can be challenges along the way! From considering what the key EDI considerations are for our organisations, to making sure that EDI remains a priority in the long term, this peer to peer is all about supporting each other to overcome those challenges. It’s a chance to work with like minded people from other local organisations to learn from each other’s experiences and insight, and develop ideas and strategies for making real progress on EDI.
How will the peer group work?
This will be a small group of around 8 - 10 peers. Spaces are limited in order to maximise the benefit for those participating. To apply, you’ll need to complete a short questionnaire to help us assess suitability and compatibility. You may receive a phone call as part of the application process. If you are not sure if this is an opportunity for you and want to find out more first, please get in touch. You must be able to attend all 4 sessions.
Registration for this peer to peer closes at 5 pm on 13th October.
