Diversifying your audiences

This webinar will help you define what ‘diversifying audiences’ means for your organisation. There is value in clarifying what diversity means. Approaches to and the understanding of ‘diversifying audiences’ are changing. It’s distinct from equality and inclusion.

Both this and the reaching digitally excluded audiences webinar were originally delivered for Year of Stories 2022 Community Stories Fund recipients, as part of a support programme organised by VisitScotland and Museums Galleries Scotland.

A teenager with medium-light skin and long brown hair, a teenager with medium-dark skin and short brown hair, and a teenager with light skin and long red hair stand in the doorway of a brown metal and wood tram. A sign on the side of the tram reads 'London Road and Clydebank'.
