Equality, Diversity an Inclusion in public engagement: an online hub
9 November 2022
Public Engagement - training
The National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) has launched a new Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) online hub - setting out their commitment to challenging inequity in, through and by the work they do, and to creating respectful, productive and inclusive environments for all members of the engagement community,
This includes resources and a starting guide to support engagement professionals with developing inclusive practice.

Of particular note for anyone doing public engagement, or supporting public engagement, are a helpful set of questions within the 'starting guide' resource, which will help you consider and address your activities through an EDI lens, both in terms of those doing the engagement and those being engaged.

This work was co-developed with the NCCPE Inclusion Working Group, made up of engagement professionals who have experience in EDI, with further input from delegates at the 2021 Engage Conference.
