Code: BH/20/1437 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.

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.
