Governance – a human rights and equalities first approach

About this course

What are human rights and equalities, and why/how should third sector boards and committees incorporate them?

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.

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.
