£299.00 ex VAT

When it comes to people, culture and diversity, organisations often look to HR to provide the key.

Human Resource professionals need an understanding of what the complete journey to diversity and inclusion looks like. A lot of organisations run isolated training events, which feedback has shown, lacks authenticity and sustainability. HR must guide the business to deliver a real and sustainable change.

This thought-provoking 3-hour workshop lets you review, and deepen, your knowledge, and ability, to promote Diversity and Inclusion within your organisation.

We will have an open and constructive conversation about what it is, what it could be, and how your organisation can work toward harnessing the true value, a breadth of diversity can deliver.

We will demystify terminology, give you advice to follow and provide tools to help you promote EDI for boards, leaders, managers and teams who need to embed good practice and engage, motivate and drive performance.
