The business case for a diverse and inclusive (D&I) workforce is stronger than ever, yet many managers have little idea how to create or manage such a workforce and what the key considerations and do’s and don’ts are. Ignorance is not an option as this may, and often does, lead to unfavourable media attention and mounting legal costs, let alone the potential negative emotional impact on both managers and those they are managing. This one-day workshop demystifies D&I and equips managers with the knowledge and information they need to confidently and considerately manage diversity and inclusion in your workplace.
