Diversity has become one of those buzzwords that everybody recognises but few people can satisfactorily define. Inclusive Learning believes that diversity is about celebrating difference, and valuing and respecting everyone in the workplace. All this, however, is easier said than done. That is why we have developed The Diversity Challenge, a range of awareness raising learning solutions.
Produced in association with leading occupational psychology practice Pearn Kandola, The Diversity Challenge will help your people challenge long-held misconceptions and prejudices about race, age, disability and all the other ways in which we differ. It will help them understand why unwitting discrimination and harassment happens, and how to ensure equal opportunities. It will also focus them on the personal and business benefits of diversity at work.
Designed for employees from shop floor level to the boardroom, this course is equally valuable for introducing aspects of diversity to staff for the first time, or for helping managers and HR professionals get the best from an organisation-wide diversity programme. Training people to understand and embrace diversity is not an event, it’s a process. The Diversity
Challenge can form a central part of this process for your organisation, and as a result will help you avoid costly and damaging discrimination claims, and create a more comfortable, inclusive work culture.
The course encourages people to recognise that today’s workforce is a mosaic of ethnic groups, religions, genders, physical abilities, sexual orientations, ages and lifestyles, and that in order to treat people equally and to enable them to give their best, it is sometimes necessary to treat them differently.
