Valuing diversity and equality of opportunity (inclusion) in all of its forms is an essential part of contemporary working life. Diversity & inclusion training is essential because awareness of the challenges, opportunities, rights and responsibilities afforded by diversity and inclusion laws and policies is essential for both employers and employees in contemporary Britain.

Current legislation in respect of diversity and inclusion provides for identification of, and robust response to, incidences of discrimination, harassment or victimisation. While ensuring that delegates are informed of relevant legislation, this diversity & inclusion training workshop is based on the view that training in diversity and inclusion is better received and acted upon when the emphasis is placed on the benefits of compliance – in terms of business outcome, enhanced equality of opportunity and a better working environment.
