Equalities & Diversity
Announcement from The UK Parliament’s Outreach and Engagement Service:-
We have released three short films, called Your Story, Our History, about how race relations and equalities legislation have affected the lives of three different people. We’re really excited about these films and have shared them on social media, and we would love it if you could share them with your social media accounts too.
This workshop combines both practical learning workshops and interactive 'Art Therapy' sessions. It is designed to look at various aspects of diversity, and how this links to mental health.
Our aim is to help people to celebrate each individual's unique skills, talents, experiences and beliefs and how we can best use these to help and support each other on a daily basis.
Come and try something different, meet new people and be surprised at what you can learn!
‘The Contribution Women Make to a Safer Community’ will shine a light on the inspirational work being carried out by women and its impact on people’s lives.
Presented by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, this free event will also look at the diverse ways women work, the obstacles they may face and the coping mechanisms they utilise.
A mix of inspirational speakers and interactive workshops will deliver a thought-provoking day for women and men alike.
