Purpose

The Equity and Diversity SIG will provide a framework in which views and individual perspectives on key issues regarding diversity and equality within early years care and education can be shared and troubled. In turn, this will facilitate the formulation of objectives and a common stance on issues in this important area at the core of future conferences. It aims to:

  • Foster awareness about diversity and equality issues within the EECERA network;
  • Stimulate discussion;
  • Improve knowledge and understanding of diversity, equality, equity and discrimination issues;
  • Further understanding as to why diversity and equity policies and practice are important and relevant to children services;
  • Generate new ideas for discussion;
  • Gain new skills to support all levels of work on diversity and equity issues
