Zebra offers a full equality and diversity training and consultancy service, including generic and specialised training, equality impact assessment (and training in equality impact assessment) and support with developing and implementing policies. We’ve delivered equality training for multifarious organisations over our 11 years, from large statutory authorities through to large national voluntary sector organisations through to small grass roots groups.
We are confident we are delivering exceptional training that balances the need to proceed sensitively to achieve engagement and bring people on board with the topics, with the need to challenge people’s prejudices, which are often as unconscious as they are deeply held. Only through this delicate balance can attitude change be achieved, and attitude change is the essential precursor to genuine, significant and lasting change in practice and behaviour.
Feedback from participants who have attended Equality training:
“That I am perhaps more open to promoting equality than I thought beforehand, and that the topic has more intrinsic value than I gave it credit for.” Devon County Council, Worker
“It was interesting to hear other people’s opinions and to have an open discussion. In the past when I have studied equality it’s simply been reading legislation out of a textbook so hearing what people had to say about it was extremely helpful and actually changed my opinions on some things. It was also useful to have a mixed group with people from different departments as it provided a broad range of opinions. The trainer made sure that we all interacted and were able to provide our opinions openly.” Rethink Mental Health, Worker
