Diversity News – Spring 2015

Welcome to our first Diversity Trust newsletter.

The Diversity Trust is three years old. We’ve come a long way and we’ve set the foundations in supporting organisations to have better equality, diversity and inclusion outcomes as our communities become more and more diverse. We’ll issue our newsletters quarterly and each newsletter will focus on a key theme within ‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusion’ while still covering our other news.

You’ll see how organisations consult us on improving and updating their equality and diversity policies and practices. We’ve researched, published reports, created tool kits and trained sta teams, so there’s a better outcome for everyone. We’ve done this across the counties covering: Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, Devon, North Somerset, Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

Our work includes domestic violence and abuse, hate crime, substance misuse, LGBTQ, Black and Ethnic Minority, working with young people, and so on, and the list is growing. We can’t squeeze everything in our rst newsletter, but you’ll get an idea how you can use us. Your ‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusion’ best practice could also feature in our newsletters. So please subscribe and send us your feedback, so we can write a newsletter you can use and share.

Enjoy the spring!

Berkeley Wilde, Director, Diversity Trust
