Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Public Engagement

How can we be more inclusive when engaging our audiences and which audiences could we be unintentionally excluding? This session will explore these questions and take you through strategies to help you embed equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) into your public engagement practice.

This session will cover:

  • An introduction to EDI and why it is important within public engagement
  • Unconscious bias and intersectionality
  • Strategies for embedding EDI into your public engagement practice
