The purpose of the course is to give the attendees a broad understanding of what equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) means to an organisation and the importance of it for all stakeholders.  The focus of the session is on developing an awareness of EDI and the benefits that it can bring to a team and organisations.  Participants will be provided with the practical knowledge, skills and awareness to practise and champion fair non-discriminatory behaviours.

The course is available as a half day or full day workshop.  the half day is suitable for staff at all levels.  The full day is for managers/leaders, during which participants are given the opportunity to look at what their organisation does now in this area, and what they feel could be added to further champion positive behaviours.

Duration of course:

1/2 day session (all staff)

Full day (managers/leaders)

Style of delivery

The training is very interactive with lots of scope for discussion and debate.  It is also at times quite challenging in terms of looking at assumptions, and at how discrimination can occur even when it is not intended (unconscious bias).
