We live in a diverse world, and in Europe 1 in 7 are from a different culture to ours. In the workplace Equality & Diversity is about recognising these differences in race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, disability, gender, etc. and appreciating the benefits these differences bring to the organisation. The course covers the legal aspects of Equality & Diversity and what responsibilities we have as professionals.
It also covers how discrimination in the workplace arises, stereotyping, prejudices, and the consequences of these to the harmony of the organisation. This is an essential course for all public sector employees & employers to comply with government directives on Equality, Diversity and Equal Opportunities, EU Directives from 2003 on Religion & Beliefs, etc.
