ACAT supports a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for members and friends of ACAT. Several of these are relevant to different aspects of equality and diversity. One is a dedicated SIG:

CAT Inequality and Diversity Special Interest Group 

This group meets three times a year. It is a forum where members meet, share, discuss and explore issues related to diversity and inequality, and how these constructs impact on clinical work. It aims to support and enhance members’ clinical skills. The first thirty minutes of each meeting are for general discussion and a further hour focusses on a clinical discussion.

It is separate and independent from committees within ACAT (including the EDC). However may plan future projects with the aim of raising awareness, offering support, training and feedback to those committees. The SIG is currently co-ordinated and facilitated by Jessie Emilion.  As co-chair of the UKCP’s HIPC working party on Equality Diversity and Intersectionality, Jessie can share developments from this forum.

Any ACAT member with an interest in this area is eligible to join the Inequality & Diversity SIG. To join, please visit your homepage and go to the SIG’s section under ‘Your Records at ACAT/Regional and Special Interest Groups’. Or alternatively you can contact Jessie Emilion directly through the members’ register.

You can see details of other relevant ACAT SIGs in that listing, such the CAT & Learning Disability SIG.
