Equality bill on the agenda

23 March 2009 - 2:25pm

Members can prepare for new equality legislation at a CSP workshop on 2 April.

CSP national officer Saraka Keating said: 'Equality is in the news and the Single Equality Bill is due to be published in April. This practical, hands-on day with high-profile, external speakers provides an excellent opportunity for participants to get to grips with key equality issues in the workplace.'  

Employers’ responsibilities

Carol Baxter

Head of equality and diversity at NHS Employers Carol Baxter will explain management’s responsibilities under the newly consolidated public sector equality duty, while Thompsons Solicitors employment rights lawyer Ellie Reeves will talk about the bill and the recent developments in discrimination law. The workshop is open to all members of the disabled, black and minority ethnic, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender networks, as well as stewards, managers, students, associate members, clinical interest group diversity officers, and members of equality networks from other allied health professional unions.

Something for everyone

Ellie Reeves

The workshop is aimed at:

  • CSP network members committed to equal treatment for staff and patients
  • Stewards wanting a better understanding of the legislation to assist with local negotiations on policies
  • Managers wanting to implement best practice and contribute to equality impact assessments

The subject relates directly to core dimension 6 of the knowledge and skills framework (equality and diversity). Everyone who takes part will receive a certificate of attendance.  For further details including an event registration application form, see the workshop listing page on this website.
