Inclusion & Covid19- Leaving no one behind

Scouting and guiding prides itself on its engaging, dynamic and inclusive programme, but how did we respond to the changes the pandemic presented?  Lets looking at how existing and NEW members can still access programme at home, find organisations who are trying to bridged the digital divide and learning from those who have always done online programme. As we evolve into the new normal, are we sure our offer is balancing the fact that many members have been ostracised with the move online, yet many have benefitted from the new approach? We’re at risk of existing members and new communities being left behind, as we adapt to the new normal or return to face to face scouting.

So lets figure out together, how we navigating through our new normal and identify ways to ensure we are actively inclusive- what actions can you take? Leave the session prepared to leave no one behind !

At the end of the session, participants will be;

  • be aware that not everyone has easy communication technology access
  • understand the impact of intersectionality and increased inequalities as a result of covid19
  • learn from and share best practice with other organisations
  • find external information to support Scouting/Guiding in these topics
  • increase their knowledge on D&I
  • raise awareness that for some scouts & guides has always been online only
