Managing Equality & Diversity In The Workplace

Overview

The working population of the UK today is diverse.

Diverse means different and varied.

People are different and varied in the way they look, dress, how they behave, what they believe in, which sex they are and how old they are.

An effective organisation appreciates and recognises the differences that exist amongst its workforce whether they be age, sexual orientation, gender, ethnic group or disability.

This workshop will explore the issues surrounding diversity in the workplace, the legislation that exists and how to maximise the benefits that a diverse workforce can bring to an organisation.
