UNISON South East Equality Conference

Chris Green ran two 1.5 hour workshops “White Ribbon and accreditation of the workplace” involving all the delegates of the UNISON South East Equality Conference held at UNISON headquarters in London on 19th April. Described as “powerful” on twitter after the event, the workshops were well received with interest in accreditation by Universities, Health authorities and  local authorities. “It was great to meet such enthusiasm and to meet some who have been working with White Ribbon for years “ said Chris. UNISON has always achieved great work around Equality issues and their workplace policy on Domestic Abuse is a great template for action. Having members who want to be White Ribbon Ambassadors and Champions and develop activities in their workplace is a great bonus for White Ribbon UK. Two additional UNISON staff (not part of the conference) came in to the workshop as they were captivated by the awareness raising materials they saw as they were passing.
