Two Guides that you should have a look at as a manager and/organisation working in the arts and culture.
Equality Action Plan Guidance
This guide from the Arts Council England helps you to produce an action plan. It starts with an excellent quote from Michelle Lally:
Equality and diversity should be built into what we all do from the start. It’s not an appendix to the business plan – it is the business plan.
Culture Change toolkit
This tool gives you a guide on recruiting and supporting diverse talent. It also includes case studies and best practices from the sector. Source.
There are 6 sections of the toolkit that can be downloaded separately.
These guides are comprehensive and very useful, however remember, that the implementation has to suit your organisation. If you would like some help to navigate and or to implement in your organisation don't hesitate to contact me.
