The Coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated the stark levels of inequality that persist in Scotland and the rest of the UK. Now, more than ever, we need action for equality and to listen to the voices of those most disproportionately impacted by this virus.

In reaction to this, over the next few weeks the STUC Equality Committees will host a Webinar to explore the impacts of Covid-19 on their protected characteristic and equality related issues in the workplace and society.

The Webinars will consist of a range of speakers and are open to all. Our Webinars will also be live streamed via the STUC Facebook.
