Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity Policy.
We would like to update members of the changes we have made to the Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity Policy which is available here Equity_Diversity_Inclusivity_Policy_Slides_FINALand Inclusivity (EDI) policy resulting from the leadership actions of our EDI working group who have been advising our Board of Trustees on this critical issue.
Over recent months the Board have committed to foreground Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity within our Values, Strategic Plan and Programme of Activities.
Members can expect to see a step change in how we provide support to activate meaningful, structural and sustainable change.
Throughout the 2020/21 Membership year and beyond, CHEAD will;
» Develop an event to promote and advocate for the Race Equality Charter.
» Partner with external organisations for expertise and critique as critical friends.
» Develop Leadership training for Senior/Executive Leadership to promote and support inclusive antiracist leadership and white allyship.
» Develop a Compassionate Pedagogies toolkit – available on the CHEAD website.
» Develop dedicated leadership training to staff to step into senior roles.
» Actively promote up-coming Trustee roles to be taken up by all candidates.
There is a clear focus on anti-racism as an immediate priority.
Within the broader policy:
» We foreground and promote wellbeing and compassionate pedagogies in art and design.
» We respect and celebrate the diversity of all our backgrounds, cultures and actions.
