Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) 21 regional groups have launched an equalities focused social media campaign and week of events across Scotland this week. The campaign is aimed at employers, parents and young people that promotes, illustrates and celebrates diversity and inclusion in the workplace and hopes to demonstrate the range of support available for young job seekers and employers.
Building on last year’s #AJobForEverybody campaign we've introduced a new feature – #MySkillsMakeMe which aims to showcase transferable skills and value through a diverse workplace.
The week will also see a series of events including a live event: ‘Strengthening Diversity through Inclusion’ with 3 In Consulting and several webisodes from the DWP featuring Disability Confident and the return of ‘Play Your Cards Right!’ with Sue Livermore, (from Dumfries & Galloway College).
We would love for you to get involved and hear from individuals across your organisation who may have faced some form of challenge or barrier through their journey from education to where they are now.
