The Equity Policy Aim. A Misfire, Misfit or Missile? Workshop
The intentions of equity can be marred by a lack of pro-poor policy and uninformed processes diminishing meaningful outcomes. Many organisations find opportunity and value in offering training to NEET youth to increase their employability and simultaneously achieve organisational equity targets.
Vulnerability, Complexity and Being ‘Equity’ NEET
Vulnerable and disadvantaged are different. Is your equity policy reflected in your practice?
Is equity about ‘evening the turf’ or is it more loaded?
Absorbing NEETs into organised economic systems is important for enhancing their career and psychological development. When dealing with vulnerable youth, generational poverty impacts requires organisations to develop sensitivities where previously they enforced expectations.
Navigation for Pro-poor Outcomes
NEET inclusion is an economic development priority. Education and training clients often request specific procedure input addressing attraction, attrition and career development services. They seldom have time to sift through the gamut of literature and statistics for direction.
Every effort is made to mesmerize you with brilliant content! But specific exercises will assist you in structuring resources! Hosted at a studio in Gallo Manor, Thursday, 20 September, we’ll cover the following hot topics:
Equity strategy, NEET demography
- statistics, so darned fascinating! Painting a vivid picture of the vulnerable, prepare for data drama!
- outlining equity, what’s it really mean? Covering assumptions, actions and contradictions.
- citing empirical studies in different disciplines, we’ll discuss questions for development. Internationally, NEET data is growing as more studies are conducted to understand how to absorb them in an economy.
