The purpose of Diversity Champions schemes is to create a cohesive group of people at all levels within an organisation, who can act as change agents within the organisation.
Diversity Champions are supported over a period to influence improved diversity practice in their areas (teams / departments / organisations). Diversity champions are important because equality and diversity is an issue that is played out in day-to-day interactions between people, and often people are unaware of things they do and say in those interactions. By having champions operating at ground level, a ‘ripple effect’ can be produced across the organisation.
Anyone in an organisation who wishes to improve their skills and knowledge on equality and diversity and improve outcomes for service users is suitable to be an equality champion.
The equality champions scheme is designed to be an on-going supported scheme with no set duration.
