Equality, diversity and inclusion
Do you wish you were more confident in recognising equality and diversity issues and dealing with them effectively in the workplace? Equality, diversity and inclusion are everyone’s business. But the concepts can seem complex and even divisive. The terminology can be confusing and it can be hard to tell what it is or is not acceptable to do or say. You may want to do the right thing but be frightened of getting it wrong.
This one-day Equality, diversity and inclusion training demystifies the Law and the issues. Its practical focus provides a common-sense understanding of how equality and diversity apply in everyday working life.
“This was a very enlightening and helpful course. The trainer encouraged us to think deeply about issues surrounding diversity, both as individuals and as a group in a relaxed and positive atmosphere.”
