This engaging course aims to inspire employees to recognise the benefits of an inclusive company culture.
During the course our trainer will facilitate open discussions through the use of scenarios, activities, and shared experiences. By taking part in the course, employees will learn practical skills that help them to foster a positive work environment, celebrate diversity, and develop a set of shared team values that help everyone to bring their full selves to work.
This course is set at an introductory level and no previous knowledge is required. It is suitable for employees of all levels within an organisation.

Describe protected characteristics (under the Equality Act 2010), explain the impact of intersectionality, and identify characteristics within yourself and your team.
