Choose to challenge | Online event

Join us for the first in a series of online events, aimed at our event community and beyond.

About this event


Choose to Challenge is an interactive development session where we will reflect on some real-life scenarios relating to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). The content of this workshop has been developed with middle managers in mind and is based around findings from the HMICFRS State of Fire report. Areas to be discussed include positive action, behaviours in the workplace, banter vs bullying, and impact assessments.

Middle managers are key to changing the culture of the FRS. Without their leadership, strategies to improve the workplace are difficult to implement. We hope to help middle managers recognise the right thing to do in problematic situations, and to realise their pivotal role in ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of the workforce.

These sessions are aimed at all middle managers in any department.

Sessions are facilitated by senior leaders, past and present from the UK Fire and Rescue Service and supported by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Service (HMICFRS) and the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC).

This event is open to all genders and we hope to encourage more conversation through diverse participation.

We’re expecting this to be a great event filled with discussion, so book your place today.
