Always an opportunity to learn
There are no doubts that the world we live in is an ever-changing one. And at Fostering Foundation we love the fact that fostering is all about the love you can give and the safe environment you can provide.
We took a number of Wessex team foster carers and two members of staff attended an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) training course on 29 January 2019. The course content included: –
The importance of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)
What is meant by EDI
Hidden Bias and Stereotyping, victimization, xenophobia, harassment, self-awareness, and our own values and beliefs
The Language of Equality
Challenges LA children may face
Transgender, transsexual, gender, identity, gender expression
Legislation underpinning EDI
How do we already promote EDI
Top 10 tips for promoting equality and diversity in the home
The trainer showed two videos and included scenarios and group work to support the training. Feedback from the group was very positive – it was an interesting training course, interactive, participative, thought provoking and a good day was enjoyed by all!
