Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Training Course

This course covers the principles of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace including both awareness and responsibilities.

Equality and Diversity can be a sensitive subject therefore this course explores attitudes, values and belief in a safe and fair environment taking it far beyond the legislation. We look at the business, moral and legal case for equality.

The Benefits of attending Equality, Diversity and Inclusion training

Many employers are unaware that they are liable for the actions of their employees. Their jokes or ill-judged comments could result in a discrimination claim and cost the employer thousands of pounds.

There are things employers can do to both help their employees and protect their business. Ensuring that your organisation is compliant means giving your employees the knowledge and skills to embrace and respect differences. In this sense, Equality and Diversity training can be much more than just compliance; it can be the building blocks of a collaborative unified workforce.

We work in partnership with you to identify the required learning objectives for each course. Typically this includes an online scoping survey with delegates.
