Mainstreaming Equalities Subgroup
The Mainstreaming Equalities group is a subgroup of the WYLDA Executive. The group enables West Yorkshire infrastructure support organisations to co-ordinate work on equalities and to think strategically about what they can do to mainstream equalities issues.
Documents and Resources
WYLDA has produced six vodcasts to date which focus on what specialist organisations do for their clients that mainstream organisations don't do or couldn't do. They also give tips for how mainstream organisations could better meet the needs of specific client groups.
Below are some documents about the work of the Mainstreaming Equalities subgroup and other publications that may be of relevance to your organisation. Please note, some of these documents are works in progress, and as such they will change and develop in due course as the Mainstreaming Equalities group develops its thinking and plans.
