AAI announces Diversity Works: 6-week online support programme for black & ethnic minorities

AAI announces the launch of a tailored online support programme for black and minority ethnic people in Scotland.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an incredible impact on the job market and people’s personal finances. The added strain of lockdown, and the current discussions of racism and wider societal change has put a huge strain on home life and people’s mindsets.

The current conversations of inclusion and equality fueled by the #BlackLivesMatter movement have further exposed the challenges experienced by people from differing minority ethnic backgrounds.

In response to these factors, we have designed a 6-week virtual support programme as part of our ‘Diversity Works’ project.

The initiative is open to minority ethnic people from all walks of life to access tailored support in employment, finance and managing life at home, with resources delivered through online events and one-to-one coaching.

This first interactive session will be held via Zoom and will feature an introduction to the Diversity Works team, an explanation of what the programme can do for you, and a chance to discuss your current concerns about the job market, your employment prospects, money and life in general.

The project will be launched over 2x online events:

24 June 15.30 – 17.30 – Register HERE

29 June 12.00 – 14.00 – Register HERE

Please attend both launch sessions to ensure you get the most from the programme launch and the team understand how to best support you.

Benefits of attending:

  • Get tailored support for your current concerns
  • Meet like-minded people in a supportive community
  • Gain a sense of balance and control
  • Learn new skills
  • Boost your employability
  • Access upskilling opportunities
  • Understand the new job market
  • Build a healthier mindset

The programme will run throughout the rest of June, finishing 31 July with a specific focus on your individual needs through live and recorded sessions as well as one-to-one support.

Tickets: Zoom event links will be sent in the days leading up to each event. Keep an eye on your inbox!
