Over the past few years, increasing attention has been drawn to the lack of diversity at both senior leadership and board level in charities. This includes reports by Inclusive Boards, The Charity Commission and Green Park alongside a number of opinion pieces in the sector’s press.
The Charity Learning Consortium is creating a range of bite size videos, to cover all aspects of diversity and inclusion. The videos will become part of our free learning library, called Clear Lessons. We are looking for people to share their very real experiences to help learners understand the injustices people face within communities, workplaces and society every single day.
We want to hear:
- Your own experience of a lack of inclusion or diversity in any situation, professional or personal. This could include examples of micro aggressions, racial profiling and unconscious bias.
- Your thoughts on the positive impact that inclusivity can have. Do you have a real-life example of a time when you have been listened to and understood by your peers?
- Practical changes that everyone can make, to help with equity, diversity and inclusion. Share your tips directly with charity staff, trustees and volunteers.
The filming process
Due to covid-19 restrictions, we’re filming virtually (using Zoom) Dr Mark Davies, Visual Anthropologist and Filmmaker, carries out the interviews. Filming takes around an hour. We’ll chat through the questions in advance. The videos are not scripted and take the approach of an informal conversation. We want to leave our audience feeling inspired and motivated.
Would you like to get involved? Please fill out the form below and we’ll get in touch for an informal chat with our project lead, Charlotte Evans.
Charities know that there’s a diversity problem and the videos created for this project will be used to support the training that they currently offer and educate employees on the steps they can take to make everyone feel more included.
Clear Lessons provides bite-size videos, completely free of charge to anyone in the charity sector. The Charity Learning Consortium created the video library as a free resource to support third sector learning and development. The videos are filmed as talking heads – real people, real stories, and no scripts.
