What's this equalities pop-up consultation tour and debates

Catina's picture

It’s a pop-up - It's on from 31 March - 9 April 2014 - It's about your ideas - It’s live - It's something we are inviting you to make happen with us - It’s here for 10 days and then it's gone. 

Hopefully you've already noticed the temporary makeover on our equalitistoolkit home page and have been wondering what it's all about. Find out at: http://www.equalitiestoolkit.com/tour/

This workforce consultation is a pop-up tour. We are visiting education and training providers arund the country and hosting 2 live debates (which will also be live streamed). We're up for anything else that spins out of your ideas during the 10 days. We've been planning it for a while but because it's a pop-up its about only being available for a short period of time. We're unleashing the idea and will then make maximum use of existing opportunities, activities, events, meetings and social media to galvanise people and create the tour.

Images in news stories

Memo to self. Must take my own advice in future. I said no images at the top of news or blogs and then what did I do... Looks OK on the screen above but if you received this post as an email digest you'll have seen what a horrid muddle it created.
