Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission launch Public Sector Duty eLearning Module

The Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC) has developed an introductory eLearning module to help public bodies meet equality and human rights standards, and their statutory obligation to implement the Public Sector Equality and Human Rights Duty. This introductory eLearning module aims to enable public servants to explore the meaning and value of equality, human rights and the Public Sector Duty in their daily work.

Mr. Roderic O’Gorman T.D., and Minister for Children, Equality, Diversity, Integration and Youth, formally launched the eLearning module on 25th April. The module is available here on the IHREC website and will shortly also be available to those in the civil service through OneLearning’s LMS system. The module is free and is suitable for all public sector staff, across all grades and functions.
