Diversity and Inclusion : The Imperative for Modern Business – 4th September 2024

Elearning - Live Online Course

3 Hours - Thursday, 4th September 2024

£299.00 ex VAT

When it comes to people, culture and diversity, organisations often look to HR to provide the key.

Human Resource professionals need an understanding of what the complete journey to diversity and inclusion looks like. A lot of organisations run isolated training events, which feedback has shown, lacks authenticity and sustainability. HR must guide the business to deliver a real and sustainable change.

This thought-provoking 3-hour workshop lets you review, and deepen, your knowledge, and ability, to promote Diversity and Inclusion within your organisation.

We will have an open and constructive conversation about what it is, what it could be, and how your organisation can work toward harnessing the true value, a breadth of diversity can deliver.

We will demystify terminology, give you advice to follow and provide tools to help you promote EDI for boards, leaders, managers and teams who need to embed good practice and engage, motivate and drive performance.

You will read some corresponding information, and complete a few questions to capture your initial reflections.

This will ensure you maximise the potential learning available during the live session.

 

Will the Trainee Receive any Post Course Assets?

Yes.  A fact sheet will be made available with a bibliography of books, links, talks, or webinars related to the topic.

 

Do I have to have a grounding knowledge in EDI to attend?

No, the pre-reading includes a grounding knowledge, so that everyone has a consistent basic knowledge and understanding. This is so we can focus on how to make a difference to your organisation – regardless of size or sector.

 

Is this training sector specific? as it includes Equality Impact Assessments (EIA’s)?

No, although EIAs are mandatory for Public Sector orgs, or commercial orgs providing a public service, they are an example of best practice and should be used to demonstrate intentions towards an inclusive culture.
