What do members say?

“I joined the best practice group as someone who is both fairly new to their role and new to equality and diversity more generally. I was made to feel welcome and it has definitely helped to build my confidence in equality and diversity issues despite only being in the role for a short amount of time. This group is a valuable resource that is and will continue to be a regular occurrence in my diary.”

“I’ve found the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Network a really useful and safe space to talk to other housing related organisations around their EDI agenda and how they do things. It helps members share best practice in the sector with food for thought at the end of each session, on how we as a sector and individual organisations can go further on our EDI agendas to support our tenants and wider the community.”
