What is the Charter?
The Charter, which is now open for signatories, was established in September 2019 as a platform to stimulate and support a planned and systematic approach to mainstreaming intercultural initiatives in the internal systems and structures, across private, public and voluntary/charitable organisations.
To become a full member of the network you or your organisation need to formally adopt and sign the Charter.
The D=I network meets on average every six weeks and also hosts events with outside speakers and organises webinars on equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). These are a great way to share best practice, network and build up a knowledge base of EDI initiatives and training opportunities.
What are the benefits?
The breadth of knowledge and experience the network draws from business, public and private sector interests, along with input from higher and further education institutions, means that issues of concern and longer-term EDI trends and developments can be addressed and discussed in a supportive and collaborative forum. One area of concern identified early in the network’s life was the lack of progression by workers from ethnic minorities into senior management roles and the role that evidence obtained from data collection and lived experience could play in developing greater opportunities for progression.
