What is the current state of Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity in your organisation and what can you do to improve it?
We have created a working structure across Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity into five transversal pillars: Access, Content, Partners, Staff and Strategy. These pillars show the different areas and levels of commitment. Don’t worry if you cannot ‘fix’ them all at once as they will overlap and interact. We know it takes time. But in our experience all pillars should be looked at to make a real change in our institutions.
