East Sussex County Council recognises the diverse needs of our community and is committed to promoting equality of opportunity and diversity in employment and service delivery.
We will challenge discrimination and encourage respect, understanding and dignity for everyone living, working and visiting East Sussex. We will do this through our influence in the community, strategic planning and policy formation in employment and service delivery and through all our other day to day work.
National Inclusion Week 2021
Inclusion Week 2021 will take place from 27 September - 3 October. Inclusion Week is designed to celebrate everyday inclusion in all its forms. It highlights the importance of inclusive practices, especially within the workplace. To mark this week we are offering a series of free, short talks on a range of equality topics.
Equality & Diversity eLearning - In this course we’ll give you examples of how to behave in a way that reflects equality and diversity practice. We don’t expect you to memorise any legislation, but it helps if you are aware of some of the key points that impact on our services. This training is to set you on the right path to understanding how you can make a difference.
Unconscious Bias eLearning - This course is different to most unconscious bias e-learning modules. We’re not going to pretend that after 30 minutes of e-learning and clicking through scenario slides – you are going to be magically cured of your unconscious biases. No, instead, we want to take you on a kind of unconscious bias journey. We’ll provide you with some actionable advice and take away challenges that can help to combat unconscious biases where you work. We really hope you enjoy discovering how your brain works.
