Together with our partners, The Equality Trust and Greater Manchester Poverty Action, we are delighted to invite Greater Manchester local authorities and the Combined Authority councillors and officers, and politicians to this short workshop on Section 1 of the Equality Act 2010, the socio-economic duty.

The workshop will include an introduction to S1 and a speaker from the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

COVID-19 has foregrounded existing socio-economic inequalities, and is disproportionately affecting people who are Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME), disabled, and/or on the lowest incomes.

In recovering from COVID-19, we have the opportunity to rebuild a more equal society. The socio-economic duty offers a powerful tool for public authorities to actively consider the way in which their policies and decisions can address inequalities.

This workshop will take place on Wednesday 11 November, from 6.00 – 7:15pm via Zoom, and we will share the dial in details the day before the session.

Spaces are limited.
