We want to help people have a say in decisions that affect their lives. However, we know that people are often excluded from the standard processes and structures that exist, and that some people are excluded more often than others.
At Traverse, we want all the processes we run – whether an engagement workshop, an online consultation, research project, or evaluation – to be inclusive; enabling all who want to participate to be able to do so in a full and positive way.
As such, we like to talk about how we can keep getting better at this. We talk to friends, partners, and clients to learn from them and their experiences. We’re collating the resources we have found useful below – this is a living page that we update monthly.
If you are interested in inclusive practice, or can recommend a useful resource or approach, please get in touch. You can either email the team below, or join the.
The Black Lives Matter protests have brought racial justice to the forefront of our inclusive practice work, and we are reflecting both on the prejudices that have influenced our past behaviour and the actions that we can take in future contribute meaningfully to change.
We're hosting a series of discussion sessions for our research and engagement peers to explore how our practice can change, open to all. For a list of topics and dates see: https://traverse.ltd/recent-work/blogs/anti-racist-research-engagement-how-does-our-practice-need-change
