Equalities Champion

A few months ago, I was appointed as one of four Elected Member’s Equalities Champions in Aberdeenshire.

My role involves highlighting equality as a key issue in the decision-making process and sharing information on equalities with other elected members.

In the spring I attended a workshop led by Stonewall, in which I learned the importance of the vocabulary we use in making people feel at ease.

Recently, I have signed up to Stonewall’s No Bystanders campaign to tackle bullying and abuse. Stonewall write that “Each and every one of us- individuals and organisations – have a responsibility to make Britain a country where every child growing up feels able to be themselves.”

This anti-bullying film is very powerful:
