Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Some time ago member, Rebecca (Fluff) Stewart, Cambridge Folk Festival, stepped forward to lead an AFO EDI Group. However, at the same time Live Music was also forming its own EDI Group and it was generally decided that we should combine our efforts. 

Fluff has now attended a few LIVE EDI Group meetings and reports that the meetings are not always most productive but certainly raise the profile of the issues involved. It has generally been decided that it is the language that needs to be sorted first of all, and LIVE intends to run some workshops and encourage as many people as possible to attend.  We can certainly join in that and we will keep AFO members informed.

The LIVE Group identify that educating on the language we use is a very good starting point and will lead naturally on to several other aspects.

Other points raised included questioning what the key starting point for anyone looking to implement a significant change in this area should be.
