Equality & Diversity Breakfast Seminar
14th October 2015
The NCVO UK Civil Society Almanac 2015 reported that few than one in ten (8%) of voluntary sector employees are from black and minority ethnic groups, a lower proportion than both the public (10%) and private sectors (11%). Not for profit
organisations need to ensure they are following best practice with regards to
recruiting, enabling you to attract and retain the best talent.
With two guest speakers this seminar will cover the following:
- Give guidance on following best practice in equality and inclusion in the workplace
- Explaining the legal duties employers have when dealing with people with histories of offending
- The practices you can adopt
- The protection which criminal record checks may or may not afford
