Code: BH/20/1482 Anti racism in social work

The Black Lives Matter movement has exposed the horrendous injustice, discrimination and oppression faced by black and minority ethnic people on a daily basis around the globe. As a society, we fall dreadfully short of the mark when it comes to ensuring equality – and unfortunately, social work is not exempt.

A real commitment to anti-racism within social work is a constant, ongoing process and so this presentation is designed only as a brief overview. 

 
This session will be delivered by Liz Howard, British Association of Social Workers (BASW)

Code: BH/20/1474 Fair and Inclusive Mandatory Virtual Staff Briefing

The council is committed to being a fair and inclusive employer and service provider to the city. This means all staff must understand their role in understanding diversity within the workplace and community, and how they embed equality and inclusion in everything they do.

The council has been working to deliver and continually develop our Fair and Inclusive Action Plan as our response to inequality and in particular racial inequality and disability discrimination.


We had planned to deliver this session in venues earlier in the year but this has been delayed by Covid-19.

We are now delivering this 90 minute mandatory briefing on Microsoft Teams. It is for all council employees and all staff must attend so that they are aware of:

  • Our Fair & Inclusive Action Plan & its background & the four key workstreams
  • Our anti-racism pledge
  • Concepts frequently used when discussing race
  • Our responsibilities and actions we can take

This session is being delivered by Ododo Dafe, Head of Housing Income, Supply & Customer Service

Please note that registration and attendance is being monitored and reported to the Chief Executive and the Executive Leadership Team on a regular basis. Regular reminders will be communicated to services to ensure maximum take up of these briefings.

Code: BH/20/1495 Staff Survey: HASC Focus Group

In July, the council asked for your views on your experience of working during the pandemic crisis via a staff pulse survey. We know the experiences of working through the pandemic and the impact on ways of working has been extremely varied across HASC. Some colleagues were required to made the shift to work from home, and the majority of staff in provder services continued to go into their places of work, with the shared aim of supporting some of the city’s most vulnerable residents.


Your experience and learning over the last six months is important to us. You do not have to have completed the survey to participate in a focus group. The learning captured from the groups will be used by us to better support your work and provide a person-centred approach to all that we do.

The focus groups are a confidential neutral space for you to talk openly, run by facilitators from the Learning & Development Team.
