Equality4U is a chance for young people to explore four key
liberation campaigns for groups within society that face
discrimination. We look at what equality is and how it affects
young people as individuals as well the reasons why the fight for
equality goes on.
The events consists of interactive issue based workshops and
plenary sessions. BYC recognises that some groups are either
under-represented or discriminated against in our society. In
particular those in BME, Disabled, LGBT groups, women and those in
faith groups. As part of BYC's commitment to combat discrimination
and to promote an active equal opportunities policy we provide
specific opportunities for members of these groups, so that with
targeted support, they can work to combat inequality in society.
The purpose is to meet together, share experiences and propose ways
to support each other and help BYC as a whole determine its policy
and campaigns in these areas. These BYC members events are known as
Equality4U and Young People and Faith, and complement other
opportunities for everyone at Conventions or the BYC Annual
Council. These comply with the requirements of
Equalities Act 2012 Code of Practice.
