Equity, Diversity and Inclusion across VODG Membership | Managing Discriminatory Behaviour

Monday 24 January 2022, 14.00 – 15.30

The focus of the meeting is managing discriminatory behaviour. As an employer and a service provider, our members often find themselves conflicted with their approach on how to manage a situation where a person they support is discriminatory to a colleague, a visitor or to each other.

Members will have an opportunity to explore how to balance a responsibility to protect their colleagues, and a duty to respect the choices of the people they support.
