TRANSLATING EQUALITY, DIVERSITY AND HUMAN RIGHTS INTO PRACTICE

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.
