Diversity Wins is a school education programme run in partnership Glasgow City Council as part of its Towards Better Futures initiative and the Rangers Charity Foundation’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Pupils learn about discrimination and prejudice, stereotyping and employability. There is a focus on the different skills sets required to do different jobs, aims to promote equality between young people and follows the Government commitment that all Scottish schools are to formally recognise the issues faced by the LGBT+ community, as part of the curriculum.

Through activities, the young people also looked at ways they can help stop discrimination.

Teacher feedback included:

“The Diversity Wins programme allowed for lots of opportunities for discussion and pupil led learning. The active session at the end allowed the pupils to use teamwork and use positive language.”

Workshops have been designed to break down barriers between young people from different backgrounds, promote anti-bullying, help prepare children for different employment pathways and motivate pupils to share the messages they have learned with families and friends.
