Wiki Edit-a-Thon to improve Wikipedia coverage of women and diversity (The Zebra Partnership)

9 October, 2018 - 13:00 to 21:00

The Zebra Partnership have joined forces with a variety of organisations to host a communal wiki update on 8-9 October 2018 to improve the coverage of women and diversity on Wikipedia.

Wikipedia is the first to admit that they have some big gender and diversity gaps. In 2011 only 10% of wiki contributors were female and in 2018 only 17% of entries are about women. Let’s help change that!

Offer of NHS fully funded places for Managers on Disability and Inclusion Training Workshops

27 Apr 2018 - 10:51 by cheryl.mcalister

The development of these workshops follows a recent piece of research that was commissioned by the Manchester Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) to ‘take a transparent look’ at workplace health in public sector organisations across the city. The research found that whilst there are pockets of good practice, there are some significant gaps, particularly in relation to disability where more needs to be done to support employees to participate in, remain in, and thrive through work.
