Dealing with Diversity Course
Dealing with Diversity is an important issue for all organisations to consider for three main reasons: to comply with legislation, to be ethical and responsible and to maximise potential business benefits. This Dealing with Diversity course is designed to introduce delegates to the key diversity issues. The style of the workshop is very participative and delegates are encouraged to explore the subject of diversity in a relaxed, fun and non-threatening way.
