Diploma in Human Rights and Equality

27 Feb 2019

Dr Angela Flynn was recently conferred with a Professional Diploma in Human Rights and Equality from the Institute of Public Administration (IPA) at an awards ceremony in Dublin Castle.

She had successfully applied to the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC) for a bursary to support these studies. The Professional Diploma in Human Rights and Equality is a one-year, part-time programme, developed in conjunction with the IHREC. It seeks to give public sector workers and others a better understanding of the place that human rights and equality occupy in public management and administration. The responsibility to devise policy, deliver services, and follow processes that protect human rights and further equality has become explicit since the introduction of the Public Sector Equality and Human Rights Duty in Section 42 of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Act 2014. Dr Flynn makes good use of her learning on this programme as she is an active member of UCC's Equality Committee and the University of Sanctuary Working Group, and has a keen interest in matters of equality within nursing and health care.
