Winter Is Coming...


Can it already be the eleventh month of the year? Is it just us, or is each year speeding up? Before 2019 disappears onto the horizon, here is a flavour of what Result CIC has been up to.

Talking inclusion and resilience: Spektrix conference, London
Jane was invited by the Arts Marketing Association to give a joint talk with their Programmes Manager, Bea Udeh at Spektrix annual conference for arts professionals. There were 600 attendees and the topic was resilience. The event covered a wide range of ideas about how to develop more resilient financial stability, health workplaces, building stronger relationships and harness technology more effectively.

Jane and Bea gave an interactive session about building inclusive teams, describing how the AMA has developed a 360 degree approach to this work. Incorporating some British Sign Language, music, silence, discussion and visuals into their talk, they encouraged the audience to consider their own organisations, how clear their inclusion policies are and what steps they would like to take to up their game.

Result CIC has worked with young emerging arts leaders and artists at DaDaFest (D/deaf and Disability Arts) for almost 2 years. We have provided workshops for a small group of leaders and separately, 1:1 coaching for emerging artists as well as mentor training for artists who work with them. 

We are delighted that DaDaFest has now chosen to create their first programme with us early in 2020 which combines group workshops with coaching. This will form part of their artist development programme and will focus on self-confidence and discovering the power of their experience and personal narrative.  As our social impact report shows, offering both individual and group support can produce powerful results. We are planning the programme now and are looking forward to working with DaDaFest again.

Pastures new in Leeds
We are delighted to have been asked to provide Unconscious Bias training for the Board of Connect Housing association in Leeds. This bespoke short session will offer awareness-raising to give new perspective on the team’s decision-making and dynamics. This will be our first work with the housing sector and we are looking forward to sharing learning.

Continuing Health Equality Impact work
We have continued our facilitation work with the Salford Equality Improvement Panel which at its most recent meeting looked at increasing social engagement between the local health services and the community. 

We also ran a follow-up event to our successful Equality Impact Assessments (EIA) Champions day in June run by Manchester Health and Care Commissioning. City neighbourhood leads met to review their progress in ensuring equality assessment plays a central role in any new policies and systems.

Feedback from both events was really positive.
