FREE training for public authorities on the public sector equality duty
This week Close the Gap is launching new guidance for public authorities on the public sector equality duty, as it relates to gender and employment. This guidance will cover fundamental principles such as mainstreaming, impact assessment, and the process of data gathering, analysis and use, alongside equal pay and occupational segregation.
In advance of this launch, we are inviting public authorities to register to attend one of our free training sessions based on this new guidance. Training sessions will be held in the following locations:
Glasgow: Wednesday 7th September 2016, 9.30am-2.00pm

This will be a participatory session which will inform the development of their new PSED guidance on gender and service delivery.
