Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Network

The EDI network is a regional offer open to our 8 local authorities.

It provides opportunities for early-years professionals of all levels and experiences to come together and reflect upon Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in a safe space. There will be opportunities for discussion, reflection, and exploration of how we know and understand the identities of the unique child, consider their families, culture, language and communities and how we can use this knowledge to influence practice in our settings.

As well as EDI network sessions, online and face-to-face, it will include training and input from inspirational speakers, as well as open days or information sharing around relevant themes.
