|Purpose:||Seeking to improve Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) across the Bar takes up a huge amount of time, resource and commitment from individual barristers, chambers, and other Bar-based organisations. To support effective programme development and delivery, this guide introduces a simple logic model that can be used to support the development of effective equality, diversity, and inclusion programmes. It applies for both programme planning and evaluation.|

This guide introduces a simple logic model for programme planning.
It demonstrates the importance of clarifying your aim, differentiating between outputs and
outcomes. The importance of scoping any assumptions your programme relies on, and of
proper evaluation. Taking this approach doesn’t have to be time consuming and can be light
touch. The discipline of this approach will increase your chance of successfully delivering
activity that achieves intended results. This will hopefully save you time, money, and the
goodwill of your members and staff. It will also support you in communicating your
programme and its success.
