COURSE DESCRIPTION

This 5-day training programme aims to introduce participants to Working With Diversity in the Workplace.

Over the course of this workshop we will look at a number of stereotypes and preconceived impressions around diversity in the workplace.  We will explore ways in which we can break down these projections and fears to build a fully integrated workplace and a safe environment for all.

TRAINING STRUCTURE

During this workshop we will be looking at 3 distinct areas of diversity:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Dis/Ability

The workshop aims to show participants, in a very practical way, how diversity affects the workplace.  How inclusion and tolerance are such emotive topics and how you and your organisation can work to implement a handbook for dealing with diversity in the workplace.

METHODOLOGY

The programme encompasses a wide range of engaging and practical tools includingRole-playing, Assessment techniques, Inspirations, Case Studies, Empowerment, Team Building, Evaluation and Feedback Methodologies.
