FREE Peer Learning session: Creating an inclusive environment for BAME volunteers
Wednesday 23 September 2020, 10.30am – 12.30pm, on Zoom
In the past few months, racism has been under the spotlight across the world, including here in the UK. As a volunteer manager, would you like to improve the diversity of your volunteers and create more inclusive, welcoming environments for BAME volunteers? If so, this Peer Learning session is for you.
We will hear insights from two recent pieces of research:
• “What the bloody hell are you doing here?”, a comparative study of the experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and White volunteers in four UK organisations (by Dr Helen Timbrell, March 2020)
• Research exploring whether BAME individuals are less likely to identify with volunteering terminology, and how volunteering can be framed to reach volunteers from more diverse communities (The Behavioural Insights Team, 2020, commissioned by Team London).
The research findings will be presented by Truly Johnston and Rachel Kamall from Team London. They will also speak about how the findings have been applied to Team London’s volunteer programmes. We will then discuss how the research recommendations can be applied to your volunteer programme, so that you can make practical and real changes to increase diversity and inclusion. Book your place.
