Inclusion of Minorities in Community Development is the third in a series of free online courses that will assist you in the delivery of a community development project and help you include the different minority groups in the process. Using community health as a springboard for understanding community development you will learn to identify diversity in the community and how to include minority groups who may have been overlooked in the decision making process. You will get an overview of the challenges of including minorities in a community development project, such as changing demographics and barriers to equitable access as well as getting an overview of why inclusiveness is important. You will also learn about the benefits that accrue to an organisation or community that is inclusive. The course then outlines the process for organisational change before going through the steps needed to affect change. Finally, you will be introduced to a number of tools and techniques, such as how to use a template for the terms of reference or how to conduct a focus group, that will help you implement inclusiveness. This course will be of great interest to professionals or volunteers working in community development and with community organisations.
