Diversity Awareness - Manager Event

1-2 Day Course

Overview

This programme is designed to raise awareness of discrimination legislation and the Equality Act 2010 and at a practical level provide knowledge and skills to increase the profile of diversity within teams. After the event, Managers will feel confident in working with their teams to identify steps everyone can take to integrate diversity into day to day practices.

It is important that Managers create an environment where everyone feels comfortable and equally valued by the Organisation, Management and their team colleagues. Positive environments lead to higher levels of synergy and ultimately higher levels of performance.

The course uses engaging and non-threatening activities designed to encourage delegates to widen their thinking and challenge stereotypes and assumptions. Delegates will be able to take the materials and activities away and use them as a launch pad for discussions back in the workplace.
