Our latest news

Jackie Driver in headscarf against a golden background

Our adviser, Jackie Driver, receives an OBE!
We are delighted that one of our fabulous advisers, Jackie Driver, has been awarded an OBE in recognition of her ‘services to hearing-impaired people, equality, diversity and inclusion’. As well as her leading role in health equality in Manchester, Jackie is also Chair of Breakthrough UK – one of the country’s very first disabled people’s organisations and Chair of SignHealth, a Deaf charity promoting equal access to health services.

When Jackie shared her news with us, we agreed that her OBE might be re-named ‘Order of British Equality’. Congratulations to Jackie. We feel privileged to work with her, benefiting from her opening up and sharing opportunities to support more marginalised people and bring about greater equality and positive change.

And another adviser is hiking the length of the country! 
If we needed any more evidence that our advisers are people with strong values who practice what they preach Patrick Davies has certainly provided it!

Patrick is currently undertaking ‘the long way up’ walking from Lands End to John O’Groats including the three highest peaks – Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis. He is fundraising for Alzheimer's Research UK, a condition which his father has. We are in awe of Patrick’s perseverance and wish him all the best for completing the 1,200 miles!

Intersectional GLAM conference: Disrupt and Empower
At Disrupt and Empower, the Intersectional GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) conference on 17 August, Hormoz and Jane will lead a 2-hour interactive session at this ground-breaking conference. Their session will enable participants to consolidate and activate their ideas and learning about making their sector more intersectional and inclusive – reflecting society’s experience more fully in all its complexity. An outcome from their session will be a shared future vision document describing the changes participants want to see.

Jane and Hormoz are particularly happy to be involved in this event because iGLAM’s founder is Jasspreet Thethi, who participated in a Result CIC programme at the University of Manchester for staff with experience of racism. Jasspreet used the coaching received on our programme to help develop the concept for her organisation. One of the most rewarding things about the work Result CIC does is seeing clients such as Jasspreet using their huge potential to make positive changes in society.

George House Trust: a new programme of workshops
Result CIC has worked with Manchester-based HIV charity, George House Trust for several years, providing individual coaching support. Result CIC co-founder and Director Emeritus, Andy Hilton, has led Better Together, a very successful programme of coaching support which continued through the pandemic. This autumn, a development programme of workshops and coaching will be run for GHT’s clients. These will focus on increasing personal confidence and communication skills as well as a session on career-boosting skills.

Coventry University: mentoring for inclusion
Having been introduced by our friends at Social Enterprise UK, Jane and Hormoz are happy that Coventry University has asked them to run training for a special ‘mentoring for inclusion’ programme. This will be based on what is sometimes called 'reciprocal mentoring' whereby the mentor and mentee both share learning. It is designed to boost connections between more and less experienced individuals from wide-ranging backgrounds to increase mutual learning and understanding. It will consist of an introductory workshop then a shorter follow-up session in smaller groups to investigate learning and how best to capture and build on this. If this sounds like something which would benefit your organisation, why not contact us for a chat?

Not forgetting the artists!
Finally, Hormoz wrote last week about our new Re-start with Strengths programme, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. We will be starting the first workshop with this brilliant group as this blog goes to press. Watch this space for progress reports!
