Diversity & Inclusion for Managers and Leaders



Course Overview
It is not always obvious when someone is different, disabilities can take many hidden forms. LGBTQ people are not always ‘out’ and someone can be shaped by their ethnicity.

The HR Suite have designed this course to educate leaders on how to create inclusive workplaces, beginning from the recruitment process throughout the employee lifecycle, where simple changes to behaviour and attitude can ensure all employees feel included.

Throughout this learning experience managers and leaders will begin to recognise the benefits of an inclusive culture, identify key metrics to measure success and drive change and classify different types of unconscious bias in the workplace and how these biases can have positive and negative effects on the culture within the organisation.
