Focus Consultancy is leading two consortia in contracts recently won from the European Commission. 'Activities promoting the business case for diversity' aims to place diversity management firmly on the strategic business agenda of European companies and business schools, among not only multinational companies but also SMEs across the EU. The project will also help develop the diversity agenda as a whole, broadening it beyond the HR department and into companies' product development, marketing, IT and purchasing departments, as well as establishing it on the curricula of business schools throughout the EU. The second project - 'Exchange of Good Practices on Gender Equality Issues in the EU' - aims to assist the launch and implementation of a series of exchange of good practices on gender equality, with a view to facilitating the exchange of information on gender equality issues and transferability of good practices among EU countries.
Making space for faith
According to Focus's recent research for NEAFE (the National Ecumenical Agency in Further Education), more than three-quarters of students in further education think that colleges should make provision for people's faith needs. For more details, see the Guardian's report at education.guardian.co.uk
