  • ?Thanks for your continued support in supporting members from the minority. My problem is I was a full time student and graduated with a BSc(Housing) 2012 but have not been successful in getting a job as all my applications have been turned down for lack of experience. I took the Housing Management module in my third year, please help me overcome this hurdle, Thanks-Andrew.

  • ?Interesting subject which I thought was well presented & more importantly for someone whom is not from a social housing background, really makes you think how this is applicable to the PRS which I have applied my trade for the last 22 years.

  • ?Quite Interesting subject as Equality & Diversity always is. As a newby to Housing this could come in handy to help my knowledge base of E&D within Housing as well as help develop not just my approac but my employers approach to the E&D issues in our community. Thanks John for this helpful presentation / webinar.

  • ?Very useful webinar. Highlights some key issues which can be easily overlooked. Changes and welfare reforms are set to make the lives of millions very difficult. Very interesting and useful facts. Well done Shergill and Thornhill.

  • I really appreciated John's presentation on how politics and governance can adversely effect separate diverse areas. The examples of good practice will be useful for reference. Kulbir's presentation clearly showed how strong leadership can set an environment for diversity to grow(increase in managers and senior managers in Genesis) however I would have loved her to show how the companies actual performance had been affected by the changes. I believe a positive company demonstrating strong performance through diversity will lead other companies into changing their corporate views.

  • Thank you John and Kulbir, I wanted to comment after watching a recording of this webinar. I feel that the affect off housing benefit caps will open up many debates. i found it thought provoking and interesting to see how other organisations are tackling and implementing Equality and Diversity in their work place. Thanks again. Tracey
