Experience: 15 years
Diversity is about difference. Essentially, a valuing diversity approach focuses on the positive aspects of the differences between people. It recognises that the different backgrounds, values, attitudes, skills and experiences that people have means that they bring a unique perspective to work issues.
The aim is to create a culture that truly values the diversity of its people, includes them, listens to them, uses their unique qualities and provides opportunities for them to achieve their potential.
This course sets out to develop the participants understanding of diversity and the possible consequences of ignoring the issue, and in particular to help their awareness.
This course covers the sensitive issue of diversity and is intended for all employees.
At the end of this session participants will be able to:
* Promote a culture which, values peoples' difference, and which challenges any threat to an individual's dignity and well-being
* Define diversity, bullying and harassment and understand the effect on victims of such behaviour
* State their role in challenging inappropriate behaviour and the impact they can have on changing the culture.
This course will be delivered in 10 one hour lessons.
