Speaking about the project, Marie Connolly, Learning, Development & Equal Opportunities Manager, University of Limerick & Project Leader said:
"Ireland is becoming an increasingly diverse country. In recent years widening participation from all members of the community has been a priority for Irish universities both individually and collectively. This equality and diversity e-learning programme is part of a wider blended approach to generating mainstream staff engagement with diversity issues. In particular, it will enable staff to consider and reflect on the part they play in building an inclusive culture across the university sector."
Dr. Maureen Murphy, Managing Director of Aurion Learning said:
"We're delighted to be working with the IUA Equality Network to develop this Living Equality and Diversity (LEAD) e-learning programme. It will include over two and a half hours of online learning, spread over five modules, allowing participants to build up their knowledge over time. It will feature best practice and engaging learning content to keep learners interested and engaged."

The Irish Universities Association (IUA) is the representative body for Ireland's seven universities. It works with and on behalf of the universities to develop strategy and associated actions to advance third and fourth level education and research. The IUA Equality Network is a sub group of the IUA and was established to work collaboratively, sharing best practice, developing institutional competence and developing intervarsity collaborative projects. The LEAD eLearning tool is an excellent example of one such collaborative project developed by the network in conjunction with Aurion Learning.
