Kettle's Yard

Great trainer - lively and effective. Obviously works in a number of settings which is good to refer to as the arts sector feels like a bubble so it is always helpful to reflect on what happens in other organisations

Arsenal Football Club

A very informative and thought provoking day.

It highlighted a number of issues that need to be addressed

Feedback from Lived Experiences of Racism in the Workplace session - October 2023

I can't describe the effect the powerful stories from those that shared them had on me. Someone said they were angry and I felt that and sadness but also hope and absolute admiration. Thank you.

It was a really positive, but sobering experience. The format allowed space for the human library books to speak, but also ensured that participants could contribute and ask questions. Really appreciate the presenters sharing what were personal and difficult stories, as I can imaging how vulnerable and angry those stories could still make them, but it was also evident how these experiences had empowered and emboldened them to fight for change for themselves and others. Increasingly - it made me want to stand with them, and support the change they so powerfully made a case for.

Good structured session. Very well presented. Love how Alyson quickly turns comments/questions into slides, just like magic! Space for all attendees to have a voice.

Thank you for a powerful training session

I think the session was really engaging and offered a lot of insight from the panel. I think it would have been beneficial to have had more time for the Q&A session to really open up the dialogue and discuss ways forward

Very good lots of knowledge and appropriate material

Excellent ensured all participants were involved and felt free to provide examples of good or bad practice

Alyson was excellent I have learnt so much about the issues relating to E&D

Good / very knowledgeable enjoyable and interactive

Very knowledgeable / excellent very useful and informative

Outstanding an excellent ‘expert’ who is authoritative and clear excellent real life examples /

This is the second time I have been in a training session of Alyson’s and it was excellent once again in both delivery and content.

A very professional approach that will help me to focus on organisational and client needs

The session was different from my expectations. The group was much smaller than I expected which was a huge benefit, there were far more training tools available than one would usually find at a course and the trainer was happy to share training tips and ideas with the group or with us as individuals. I felt that the trainer was interested in us as individuals and the sectors we work in.

Definitely would recommend the course Speaker made the session relaxed. Had a style that I would wish I could emulate

An excellent course which really enhances your knowledge as skills as a trainer in this area

Alyson was extremely knowledgeable and brought the training to life. I was able to learn a lot from her own examples of providing training, which is something that you cannot get from a textbook

Excellent knowledge of area. Thank you. Very thought provoking

Very interesting. I learned a lot about myself and others

I enjoyed the training and learned from it

"Very thought provoking. Excellent guest speaker, related issues to current topics. Probably the best training day I have attended! Correct pace, very interesting and a good variety of exercises to complete made the day very enjoyable"

"Speaker/Trainer was excellent-very knowledgeable and able to put points across in a clear way. She was professional but approachable. She made the session more interesting by use of interactive tasks and video recordings – held groups concentration. Her handout is a very informative reference resource. Her information also gave realistic and practical suggestions – not just legislative solutions. I think everyone in the company should have the opportunity to attend a similar training session."

"I would encourage staff across the company to take the opportunity to attend this training day – very valuable"

"I found the training very useful and interesting. I would like further training in this area"

"The trainer was very professional and dealt well with what could have been a very sensitive issue for the participants – but made everyone feel comfortable enough to discuss their experiences/feelings, etc…"

Philosophy behind our open training events, conferences and seminars

If organisations are to successfully implement equal opportunities, staff need to update their equality and diversity knowledge, skills, experience and personal and professional development.

The UK is becoming increasingly diverse; in order to meet the diverse needs of service users and staff, employers need to be pro-active in all that they do to promote equality and diversity.

Equality and Diversity UK provides a range of equality and diversity 'intimate' seminars, workshops, briefings, training programmes, information, advice and guidance, all of which support organisations to promote equality and diversity and foster good equality practice. Our open training programmes support delegates to reflect on their attitudes, actions and practice, which helps individuals to increase their self awareness, confidence and competence.

We are skilled at engaging even the most sceptical delegates and in delivering training which is supportive and inclusive.

As well as the following seminars and training events, we also offer tailor-made in-house equality and diversity training courses
