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 support boards and committees to embed a Human Rights and Equalities First approach into their work.
