Diversity workshopに参加して

先週、かつてトレイニー・カウンセラーとして研修していた機関で催された「Diversity Workshop」に参加した。

The aim of the workshop is to raise awareness about issues concerning equality, diversity and respect. The session will also celebrate differences, as well as common interests, illustrating that these can be relevant for us all in our daily lives and in our working environments.

The approach will be thought provoking and experiential in nature, providing an opportunity for participants to explore sensitive subject areas with each other in a safe environment.

Workshop Outcomes:
The session will:

Introduce commonly used and abused terms and concepts concerning prejudice, stereotyping and discrimination

Demonstrate how prejudice and discrimination happens and the impact it can have

Gain an understanding of the different types of psychological constructs that might have relevance or come into play with clients

Explore the impact of unconscious bias – and what we can do about it

Explore ways to embrace difference but also to examine our own values in relation to it

Develop the capacity to think critically about our own theoretical model, exploring tensions between theory and practice

Assess how different aspects of Western-based theory can or cannot be applied in a range of cultural contexts

Recognise the benefits of equality and diversity - and why they should be actively practiced in a workplace environment

Enable students to learn about tangible, positive actions that can be put into practice

 このようなワークショップでは必ずいるドミナントな二人の参加者のおかげで実際は予定の半分くらいで終わってしまった。ただ、ダイヴァーシティに関しては、日常で経験していることで充分だと感じていたが、このようなきちんとしたワークショップに参加したことで、情報をアップデイトできたのは良い経験だった。特に名前だけは知っていたが、自分で調べようと思うきっかけがなかった「Equality Act 2010」を知る良い機会になった。


Protected Characteristics

Throughout the guidance you will see reference to 'protected characteristics'. This page gives you mor
e information on each of the nine protected characteristics.


Where this is referred to, it refers to a person belonging to a particular age (e.g. 32 year olds) or range of ages (e.g. 18 - 30 year olds).


A person has a disability if s/he has a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on that person's ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.

Gender reassignment

The process of transitioning from one gender to another.

Marriage and civil partnership

In England and Wales marriage is no longer restricted to a union between a man and a woman but now includes a marriage between a same-sex couple. [1] This will also be true in Scotland when the relevant legislation is brought into force. [2]

Same-sex couples can also have their relationships legally recognised as 'civil partnerships'. Civil partners must not be treated less favourably than married couples (except where permitted by the Equality Act).

Pregnancy and maternity

Pregnancy is the condition of being pregnant or expecting a baby. Maternity refers to the period after the birth, and is linked to maternity leave in the employment context. In the non-work context, protection against maternity discrimination is for 26 weeks after giving birth, and this includes treating a woman unfavourably because she is breastfeeding.


Refers to the protected characteristic of Race. It refers to a group of people defined by their race, colour, and nationality (including citizenship) ethnic or national origins.

Religion and belief

Religion has the meaning usually given to it but belief includes religious and philosophical beliefs including lack of belief (e.g. Atheism). Generally, a belief should affect your life choices or the way you live for it to be included in the definition.


A man or a woman.

Sexual orientation

Whether a person's sexual attraction is towards their own sex, the opposite sex or to both sexes.

[1] Section 1, Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013.

[2] Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Act 2014.
