THE ADVENTURES OF A PEACOCK TRYING TO MAKE HER WAY IN THE LAND OF PENGUINS or WHY EQUALITY, DIVERSITY AND HUMAN RIGHTS MATTER!

Dianna Yach, equality, diversity and human rights champion

This course will highlight how good intentions alone are not enough for the effective implementation of equality, diversity and human rights strategies. Drawing on case studies derived from experience in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, South Africa, Israel and Ramallah, this course addresses commonalities and differences in moving from rhetoric to reality. It offers insights into the vexed terrain of culture change, overcoming stereotypes and binary thinking.
