Tuesday 30 October 2007, 10am - 3pm, Glasgow Menzies Hotel
A FREE day conference on mainstreaming the outcomes of the One Workplace Equal Rights Project, the event aims to showcase the project's innovative strategies and resources and provide a forum to discuss how these can inform future equality policy and practice. This is an ideal opportunity for all trade unionists, regardless of prior knowledge, to integrate equality issues into the overall trade union agenda. The event will also be of interest to policy makers, community groups and employers.
If you are an employer and would like information on working with Trade Unions to advance equality issues in the workplace, we would be delighted to make a presentation, at a relevant event, on how the project can facilitate this type of partnership. Please contact us to discuss further.
Awareness-raising seminars for TU Reps have successfully taken place in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness in 2004, which focused on recognising discrimination and defining basic legal rights for disadvantaged groups.
Building upon the success of these seminars, we are offering tailored workshops and presentations to specific Trade Unions, branches and workplaces. If you would to organise an event in your workplace or Trade Union, please contact us.
The One Workplace Equal Rights Campaign is commissioning research to explore the operation of equal opportunities policies and practice in the workplace, identifying barriers and opportunities. The findings of the research will support the work of the Campaign and the STUC in promoting equal opportunities in Scotland.
As part of this research, we are also seeking to establish a group of Trade Unionists to participate in specific research activities in conjunction with other researchers and Trade Unionists. This represents a good opportunity to build capacity within your union and also to learn about good practice within other unions.
If you interested in participating in the research activities please contact Zaffir Hakim, Development Manager, Tel: 0141 337 8122, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
