Fully funded ‘Creating Diverse Workplace’ series in February and beyond

Funded by the Scottish Government and Scottish Funding Council, Equate Scotland, the Association For Black and Minority Ethnic Engineers (AFBE), and The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) are partnering to deliver the Increasing Diversity in Manufacturing project.

Through the project we are providing fully-funded training courses which will support organisations to review their practices and increase diversity in their workplace, to help take action on equality and inclusiveness in the workplace by helping them create a holistic ED&I strategy that will have a whole organisation approach to gender equality in STEM.

The series equips organisations to take steps towards more inclusive workplaces which don’t necessarily require the organisation to make expensive changes after taking part in the series.

This project is particularly suited to SMEs in STEM who are motivated to make tangible changes to their workplace to improve inclusion and recruit more diverse talent. In order to embed a whole organisation approach we ask three members of each organisation to take part:

  • Senior Manager
  • HR or involved in recruitment
  • Technical or skills background

There are three 2-hour interactive workshops which cover, Skills to Mitigate Inequality, Inclusive Recruitment & Positive Action.

Our next course has places available for organisations, with the following session dates and times.

  • 1st February 2022 (10:00-12:00) – Skills to Mitigate Bias
  • 8th February 2022 (10:00-12:00) – Inclusive Recruitment
  • 15th February 2022 (10:00-12:00) – Positive Action
