Training

We cover a wide range of equality, diversity and inclusion areas such as:

Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion – This workshop explores core equality concepts, bullying and harassment, organisational values and behaviours, equality impact assessments and the Equality Act. It outlines the relationship between equality and diversity and considers the business case and business benefits. The course will review the appropriateness of language, banter, effective feedback and challenge.

Data monitoring – This workshop will assist you in developing appropriate data monitoring systems and procedures. We will explore this from both a workforce and customer service aspect. In the case of the latter, we will equip employees with the confidence to maximise collection rates. We will provide expertise, advice and best practice approaches to equality data collection, analysis and reporting.

 

Unconscious bias – Research shows us that unconscious or implicit associations affect the decisions that we make and how we communicate with people every day. This course will examine how our unconscious preferences impact on the way we operate in the working environment; Stereotype threat, Internalised bias and Privilege. It will detail how to reduce the effects of unconscious bias as individuals and within the organisation.

 

Inclusive leadership – Research has shown that inclusive leadership leads to better performance, greater retention and satisfaction levels amongst staff. This course will analyse inclusive personal traits and creating an inclusive environment where individuals, teams and the organisation thrives. It will equip managers with the appropriate skills and knowledge to make people feel valued and create a productive working environment focusing on culture, relationships and decision making.
