Written answers (Question to Transport)

The information requested by the Deputy is currently being collated by my officials and will be forwarded to the Deputy within 10 working days.

The following deferred reply was received under Standing Order 51
I refer to the above PQ to ask the Minister for Transport; Tourism and Sport the external consultancy organisation or provider which delivered diversity and inclusion training within his Department from 2018 to date; the costs associated with such services; and if he will make a statement on the matter.  
In November 2018, CARA (Sport Inclusion Ireland) provided training in relation to accessibility to sport for those with a disability but did not charge for the training.
In 2019, the National Disability Authority (NDA) provided “NDA - Online Disability Equality Training for Public Sector Staff “at no cost to my Department.
In 2020, ShoutOut provided training on “The History of Pride” at a cost of €500.00 (which includes a discount for Public Sector Organisations) and the Department of Justice and Equality provided training on “The Development of Marriage Equality Legislation” at no cost to my Department.
My Department is committed to prioritising diversity and inclusion. It has facilitated and will continue to facilitate talks and presentations from staff members and advocates on diversity and inclusion issues, such as living with visual impairments and LGBT+ issues.
