West Lothian College is supporting Equalities week which runs from 10- 14 December. A range of activities and promotion is being planned to celebrate diversity and showcase how everyone at the college is  treated equally, no matter their background.


The highlight of Equalities week at the college is an exhibition by the Anne Frank Trust, which will be running for the whole week. Staff and students are encouraged to attend as the trust uses the moving story of Anne Frank’s life as part of their education work to create a society safe from prejudice and discrimination.


Other activities include: bespoke equalities training; a social media campaign to raise awareness; and a treasure hunt organized by the Student Association.


Staff and students should look out for a full timetable of activities being published shortly.
