Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

(Understanding Unconscious Bias)

Course summary

The recent events in America and the Black Lives Matter movement has forced us all to challenge the very assumptions and orthodoxies upon which our society was built and in so doing to take a look at ourselves.

Equality, diversity and inclusion is everyone’s business. But the concepts can seem complex and even divisive. The terminology can be confusing and it is often hard to tell what it is or is not acceptable to do or say. You may want to do the right thing but be frightened of getting it wrong.

The course is intended for anyone, at any level and helps you understand your responsibilities for promoting equality and diversity in the workplace. The course provides a review of the Equality Act 2010, explains what is meant by discrimination, harassment and victimisation, and outlines each of the protected characteristics in detail, so that you can learn how to encourage equal opportunities and ensure discrimination is prevented.

Unconscious bias is something that affects everyone and sits at the heart of much of our discrimination and no one pretends that it is easily eradicated. But realising that it does exist and acknowledging the potential business risks it brings is a good starting point.  Understand why and learn how unconscious bias can affect your decisions regarding recruitment, selection, leadership, motivation work and client relationships and more.

Its practical focus provides a common-sense understanding of how equality and diversity apply in everyday working life. The course come in two parts.
