Event Details

This session is for anyone who wants to gain an understanding of what Diversity is and their legal responsibilities with regards to the Equalities Act 2010. The day will be aimed at those who work or volunteer at Heritage Engineering Museums, although everyone is welcome. It is hoped that we can take the jargon out of Diversity and explain exactly what it is.

With speakers from the Museum of Technology, Tudor House Museum and the University of Cambridge department of Equality and Diversity, it is hoped that delegates will gain an understanding of what Diversity is, why it matters and what their legal responsibilities are.

 Delegates will also have the opportunity to have a tour of IWM’s Lancaster Bomber in AirSpace.
