Governance – A Human Rights and Equalities First Approach


11 June 2024 - 13:00


This is a free course, open to anyone working in Scotland’s Third Sector

About this course

This is an introduction to what a human rights and equalities approach means for third sector boards and committees.

It’s for people who have a say, or give advice and support, on how boards or committees are run: trustees, board or committee members, managers, capacity building officers etc. – and will provide you with the tools you need to integrate human rights and equalities into the work of boards and committees.

The main session runs for 2 hours, with an optional 30-minute clinic for those wanting tailored advice and support from our Governance expert, Anj Handa.

Join us to learn:

  • About human rights and equalities – what are they, and why do they matter?
  • What a human rights and equalities first approach is and why it is relevant to your board.
  • How to apply this approach to your board’s recruitment and culture.

This training will be hosted online, we will send you the Zoom link to join 2 days before the event.

The training is open to anyone working within Scotland’s third sector interested in board governance. It will run from 3pm to 5pm with an optional 30 minute clinic session on Tuesday 11th June 2024.

We strive to make all of our training sessions accessible. Please let us know if you have any accessibility needs when you book your place.

Please note, if a significant number of people from a single organisation register to attend the same training session, we may be in contact to seek alternative options.
