General Admission £0
In partnership with Equate Scotland and Skills Development Scotland we're offering free online training about inclusive recruitment practices specifically designed for small and medium sized cyber enterprises.
Workplace inclusion in today’s environment is a critical topic that cyber employers can no longer see as “a nice to have”. Inclusive recruitment is a vital component of a broader approach. By ensuring that inclusive recruitment practices are embedded within the organisation, not only are we adhering to our legal duties but also ensuring we are tapping into a wider talent pool, fostering diversity of people, experiences, and innovation.
Inclusive recruitment refers to the processes and practices used to attract, interview, and hire a diverse pool of talent. This is to ensure we can reduce bias at different stages of the recruitment process and ensure the best-qualified people get hired for positions regardless of gender, ethnicity, or any other protected characteristics.

We do this through creating opportunities for women and non-binary people, supporting inclusive workplaces, and by connecting women and employers.

About Skills Development Scotland
Skills Development Scotland is the national skills body supporting the people and businesses of Scotland to develop and apply their skills.
In March 2023, the Digital Economy Skills Group worked with SDS to develop and publish Scotland’s first Digital Economy Skills Action Plan (DESAP). This plan highlights the unprecedented window of opportunity to harness the economic value of the digital economy, by supporting Scotland’s National Strategy for Economic Transformation, Scotland’s AI and Cyber Resilience Strategies, and Scotland’s ambition of becoming a green economy.
We can work together to build a vibrant digital economy which creates opportunities for all and is an important contributor to achieving inclusive growth.
