How to use the Data Protection Act 2018 alongside the GDPR by hannah.flynn@ncvo.org.uk — last modified Sep 18, 2019 02:15 PM
In all the hyperbole surrounding the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) it may have been easy to miss the UK passing its own updated data protection legislation – the  Data Protection Act 2018  (the Act). This came into force at the same time as GDPR on 25th May and replaces the Data Protection Act 1998. The GDPR allowed individual EU states some flexibility to add their own detail in relation to specific areas. The Act fills in some of those gaps as well as bringing the GDPR into UK law. It is important to note that GDPR applies in the UK unless government choses to get rid of this legislation after it exits the EU.  Here are some of the most important points, outlined in the Act:

How to avoid inherent bias in your job adverts by Clarissa Waldron — last modified Sep 12, 2019 02:16 PM
The charity sector is a uniquely rewarding place to work, and it’s down to the remarkable, dedicated and super-talented people we have working for us. They are our defining asset and our most valuable resource.  But though the sector is jam-packed with enthusiastic and passionate employees,  we’re insufficiently diverse  and it’s holding us back from reaching our full potential. We need a workforce that’s more representative of our communities and our richly diverse population so we’re better at providing the right kind of support—in the ways communities want. We need to end group-think and replace it with diverse leadership teams that can create new solutions to old problems. So how do we get there?  It starts at the very beginning—the job ad. It’s a key tool in your hiring strategy and a determining factor in the quality of candidates who will apply for a job with you. If you’re serious about attracting good candidates from a diverse talent pool and from communities currently under-represented in your organisation, then you must avoid inherent bias in your job ads. Here’s how. 
How to Create an Inclusive and Diversified Non-profit Team by Nate Vickery — last modified Sep 12, 2019 02:13 PM
Equality and diversity are two buzzwords often used very lightly by many businesses that only aim to follow through with certain policy expectations. Too often it’s all about image and reputation instead about the actual issues. However, in the world of non-profits, the merits of a diversified team structure trump many hurdles organisations need to surpass. Fostering equality through difference actually has a tendency to make us smarter , more productive, and better at what we do, which is something every single non-profit needs. No matter the cause that is at the heart of your organisation, every non-profit can benefit from practicing what it preaches. Whether it’s hiring more people of colour when they work with such communities, or providing education to those in need, your hiring strategies need to reflect your core values. This is something that will not only boost your standing, but also help achieve your goals as a group. Here are several ways in which you can ensure greater diversity and live by your words at the workplace, as well.
