Why book this course?
Most of us will live and work with a wide variety of people and communities. While we all have a lot in common, different races, religions, ages and genders will naturally bring different perspectives. By better understanding how this impacts on you, your workmates and your customers, you can unlock a happier and more productive workplace.
Our highly practical Equality and Diversity course covers the fundamentals of equality and diversity, encouraging better attitudes and understanding between colleagues. You’ll receive a primer on the jargon around diversity, the value of diverse opinions and perspectives, and an overview of the relevant laws around workplace equality.
