From Monday 16th November2020 we are very excited to officially launch DYW’s #ajobforeverybody campaign!
Aimed at employers, parents and young people, #ajobforeverybody intends to promote, illustrate and celebrate diversity and inclusion in the workplace across Scotland through a variety of social media content, videos, live online events and webinars.
The week will also see a series of events arranged by DYW Dumfries & Galloway including a Live Event ‘Strengthening Diversity through Inclusion’ with 3 In Consulting and several webisodes from the DWP featuring Disability Confident and the return of ‘Play Your Cards Right!’ with Sue Livermore, (from Dumfries & Galloway College).
You can support also the campaign by getting involved in our #myskillsmakeme activity – find out more below!
What activities are on throughout the week?
Wednesday 18th November, 12.00pm
‘Strengthening Diversity through Inclusion’ – Paul Skovron from 3IN Consulting
During this live event Paul will be talking about the pitfalls and advantages of creating a diverse workforce.
The session will cover:
The importance of equality in the workplace and the legal requirements on organisations to comply with the Equality Act
The impact of discrimination and bias in the workplace
Explain the concepts of diversity and inclusion
The opportunities and advantages of creating an empowered diverse workforce
How an engaged diverse workforce transforms organisations
How an inclusive organisation can reap tangible benefits through the diversity
With our #myskillsmakeme activity, we are showing young people that by working on their skills, attitude and approach to life they have it within their control to affect their outcome. We also want employers to see the emerging talent of our young people based on the skills they are developing!

To challenge stereotypes
To provide real examples that illustrate diversity and inclusive practice in the workplace
To highlight regional partners who will support businesses/organisations in understanding diversity and inclusion
To illustrate the skills people, bring to the workplace
