Diversity matters

Course summary

Diversity is an important issue for all organisations to consider for three main reasons: to comply with legislation, to be ethical and responsible and to maximise potential business benefits. This half-day diversity awareness workshop is designed to introduce delegates to the key diversity issues. The style of the workshop is very participative and delegates are encouraged to explore the subject of diversity in a relaxed, fun and non-threatening way.

  • Who is this course for?

    This diversity workshop is for anybody who wants to find out more about diversity and our legal obligations in an enjoyable, hands-on and non-threatening way. The workshop is relevant to people working at all levels.

    The Centre works with people from all sectors including the public sector, voluntary sector, private sector and corporate sector.

  • What will this course help me do: learning outcomes?

    The workshop will allow delegates to explore and discuss diversity issues in a safe environment and to gain an understanding of the new Equality Act 2010. The tone of the workshop is extremely positive and motivating. This workshop is not about lecturing people about what they 'must' do but hopefully about inspiring them to want to take diversity seriously because of the myriad of potential benefits for organisations and individuals alike.
