Cultural Competency sessions are designed to take place after Unconscious Bias and It’s About Race sessions.
“We have worked with The Diversity Trust to provide diversity training to staff and companions (service users). We also had Russell facilitate a conversation about race for our staff team, it having become apparent that people were not comfortable talking about race. We used this as a starting point to form an anti racist group of staff, companions and a trustee which will develop an anti racist policy and other initiatives. I would recommend The Diversity Trust to any organisation looking to improve, or to reflect on their values and actions when it comes to diversity.”
– Jessica Hodge, Chief Executive, Emmaus Bristol
“The training was fantastic! All the feedback has been really positive and I think we all learnt a lot. It also has led to lots of discussions which has been great, this was the reason why we wanted to start having these types of training session/talks.” – Soona Cherry, FeelUnique
