Valuing Diversity Course


About This Course:

Get the skills and knowledget you need to manage the complexities around diversity, discrimination and prejudice.

This workshop covers self-awareness and managing dynamics in your private and professional life.

  • Manage attitudes and behaviours within the organisation with emphasis on self-awareness
  • Manage diversity and discrimination in a peer group and in the larger context of the organisation
  • Create a collaborative culture of inclusivity and tolerance in the organisation

You get a customized diversity workshop to fulfil the needs and attitudes of stakeholders which differ from organisation to organisation and even within departments.

Sessions are subtly tailored based on the group (for example staff members versus the senior management team).

We recommend conducting training in groups of similar occupational level in a ‘top down’ approach i.e. management, supervisory staff, staff members, etc. where possible. However, we ensure that there are overlapping common elements in all workshops to create synergy. The workshop may include a ‘company values’ section to supplement the generic content and ‘bring it to life’.
