EVENTS

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Certification Course for Leaders and Managers

Wednesday 1st May + Thursday 2nd May
9:30am - 4:30pm
Live online

Verifiable CPD: 20 hours

In collaboration with the Law Society of Scotland, our founder Naeema Sajid Yaqoob will lead this certified CPD course. It has been specifically created for those in management or leadership positions who are seeking to understand their own role in driving progress and meaningful action in the EDI field within their workplace. 


In today’s dynamic business landscape, understanding the principles of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is a non-negotiable skill for both effective leadership and contributing to the ongoing success of your firm. An inclusive and diverse firm will have far-reaching benefits across all aspects of your business; diverse lawyers bring diverse opinions, diverse teams make better decisions, and a more diverse and inclusive legal sector drives innovation and creative solutions. 

Through practical discussions led by Naeema involving industry experts and those with lived experience, this course will provide you with the stepping stone you need to foster and promote a lasting culture of equality, diversity and inclusion to help you drive progress and help futureproof your firm.

Legal Services Agency: Victims, Witnesses and Justice Reform Bill conference

Thursday 30th May
9:30am - 2:45pm
Clockwise Glasgow
Savoy Tower, 77 Renfrew St, Glasgow G2 3BZ

Promising an in-depth exploration of ground-breaking legislation reshaping Scotland's legal landscape, and offering an opportunity to contribute to future shaping of justice reform, this conference is not to be missed. 

Diversity+ founder, Naeema Sajid, will be chairing this event, joined by Seonaid Stevenson-McCabe, Sandy Brindley, Gareth Reid, and Kevin Henry. Together we will explore the complexities of the bill's six key provisions, from establishing the Victims and Witnesses Commissioner to implementing trauma-informed practices in both criminal and civil courts. Join us to uncover the significant changes, including the removal of the not-proven verdict, adjustments to the criminal jury, and the establishment of a revolutionary sexual offences court. Learn about the commitment to providing victims of sexual offences with lifetime anonymity and the empowerment of complainants by granting them the right to independent legal representation.

Be part of this crucial conversation as we collectively forge a path toward a more compassionate and responsive justice system in Scotland.
