Equality and Human Rights Exchange Conference 2017 Equality and Human Rights Exchange Conference 2017

Equality and Human Rights Exchange Network upcoming events

Spring Equality and Human Rights Exchange events 2018

We have set the date for our next set of regional Equality and Human Rights Exchange events:

7 February, Richard Ley Development Centre, Swansea (West Wales)

13 February, Rhyl Fire Station, Rhyl (North Wales)

27 February, Sobell Leisure Centre, Aberdare (South Wales)

The focus of the events will be on Sexual Harassment in the workplace. We will explore what sexual harassment is, why it matters and what can be done about it. You may also be aware that the Commission has written to public bodies and anchor companies across Great Britain as part of a call for evidence on sexual harassment. We hope to be able to share with you emerging findings from this work.

Please feel free to invite colleagues from other departments within your organisation that you think would benefit from the events.

The theme of this conference was ‘embedding human rights into public service delivery’.

The spring 2017 Equality and Human Rights Exchange Network event focused on two topics:

  • Practical steps employers and others can take to increase employment rates of disabled people in Wales
  • Assessing Equality Impact Assessments - effectively critiquing
