Working in Inclusive Ways

ignoranceprejudiceWorking in inclusive ways is a great, free online resource to help you understand and overcome exclusion, discrimination and disadvantage in your own engagement practice.

Developed by community development specialists Jill Bedford, Sue Gorbing and Sal Hampson (changes), the resource is “aimed at anyone who is involved in planning and delivering community engagement at any level and in any context”.

Through the site you can explore equalities, consider barriers to involvement, and develop an understanding of some practical transferable skills and ways of thinking and behaving which promote inclusion and equality.

As part of our engaging together training and support we run a half day training course, Working in Inclusive Ways, based on the same materials. The next session will be on Thursday 28 November, click here to register a place. (See all our upcoming training courses here.)

If you can’t make the course, or prefer different ways of learning, check out the free online resource, and maybe have a look at the TED Talk below, which covers some of the same ideas.

We’d love to hear your experiences and ideas around working in inclusive ways. Click in the ‘Leave a Reply’ box below to let us know what you’ve done, useful resources you’ve found, or questions you have. What has your biggest challenge been in relation to including people?
