Why is a Human Rights and Equalities First Approach relevant to the governance of your organisation, and how would you implement it?

Governance is concerned with the top-level decision-making structures of an organisation. Trustees and board members are responsible for providing organisations with their strategic direction as well as maintaining their integrity and legal compliance. This could include establishing the organisation’s mission, measuring impact, and deciding on how best to use resources.

As such, trustees and board members can greatly impact how closely an organisation follows a human rights and equalities first approach.

Our Governance courses and resources can support boards and committees to embed a Human Rights and Equalities First approach into their work.

Governance – a human rights and equalities first approach

This half day course 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.
