The Basics

A Human Rights and Equalities First Approach – The Basics

 

About this course

Human rights and equalities – what are they, and why do they matter?

This course is all about the basics, it’s for people who are just starting out and want to learn the fundamentals or who know a bit about human rights and equalities and want to know more or are just curious about what a human rights and equalities first approach might be.

 

Join us to learn:

  • About human rights and equalities – what are they, and why do they matter?
  • What is a human rights and equalities first approach, and why it is relevant to you and your organisation.
  • How we can start a conversation and talk constructively about human rights and equalities.

Our training sessions will introduce you to THRE’s Human Rights and Equalities First Approach and provide practical steps to start or continue your human rights and equalities journey.

The Basics training has been designed by Jamie Spurway and the THRE team.

“It was great to reflect on our own organisation’s work and how we can incorporate a Human Rights and Equalities First approach even more, and to speak to other organisations about best practice.”
