Our society is incredibly diverse, and for many of us our workplace environment feels like a great place to be, but this is sadly not the case for everyone. Just because you are experiencing inclusion doesn’t mean everyone is, sadly many people are still experiencing discrimination.   This course introduces the key elements of diversity and inclusion, underpinned by the Equality Act, that everyone needs to know about. These are related to workplace situations we will all recognise, but may not feel sufficiently equipped to handle.
