During the pandemic we hosted a series of webinars to support leaders and managers from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.
The webinars covered a range of topics and provided a platform to share experiences:
This webinar covers the challenges of discrimination. It explores how people are discriminated against, the types of discrimination and what individuals can do to address this.
This webinar explores the challenges an organisation may face when looking to become anti-racist, how they can embrace and understand race and what they should do to address the imbalance.
This webinar looks at each of the recommendations from the COVID-19 task force and black, Asian and ethnic minorities Communities Advisory Group facilitating discussions around how organisations can drive these recommendations forward.
This webinar focuses on addressing the challenges by reflecting on the history of the panels' lived experience and what strategies they've learnt and put into place to combat and protect themselves and the importance of networks and colleagues to build alliances with. This webinar illustrates that by understanding the problems, they're not solely those of people from a Black, Asian and ethnic minority; but belong to everyone and are everyone’s responsibility.
COVID-19 has had a huge impact on the mental wellbeing of people from ethnic minority communities. Listen to the panel of experts discuss the history and impact of everyday discrimination, social inequalities and the effect these complex challenges and stresses can have on staff mental health and wellbeing. It also covers how risk assessments should be managed by organisations and what individuals can do to work and assist each other.
Whilst networking internally and building alliances is really important, understanding how to network with colleagues outside your organisation and the benefits this can bring is really important too.
This webinar identifies the challenges organisations, networks and individuals can face.
This webinar will focus on supporting people who organise their own care via direct payments - the importance and challenges of cultural matching and rights to access PPE, risk enablement, human rights and the protective factors of safeguarding adults and supporting staff and people in care home establishments.
This recorded webinar focuses on how organisations need to do more to be inclusive and be aware of the challenges their staff are facing. It looks at how registered managers play a part in ensuring their staff have the space to undertake difficult conversations. It features a panel of experts across the field presenting the challenges and looking at possible solutions to drive and deliver change.
