Tackling the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Security has been a priority of AUCSO since our Diversity was created in 2016 and the current AUCSO Exec are looking to push this even further.
Oliver Curran has been working on EDI Initiatives with the Security Commonwealth for many months and has now been asked to speak at tomorrow’s Thought Leadership Webinar at 3.30pm (GMT).

Details of Webinar:
Building on previous webinars that have looked at different aspects of equality, diversity and inclusion, this one focusses on what needs to improve. This is a broad topic, there are many issues that merit consideration here although the security sector has not been good at discussing them all equally, just for example: age, disability, gender (reassignment), marriage and other types of partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, and/or sex. So what are the gaps and how might we begin to respond to them? What are the barriers and how might they be tackled? Is the security sector ready or not and why? What does a good initiative look like? This webinar will:
– Discuss the current approaches to inspiring diversity and highlight the gaps
– Explore the different elements of diversity and exclusion and why some have not been a focus
– Evaluate what needs to happen next and who should be responsible
