Creating an Inclusive Working Environment - Managers’ Workshop

Aim

Many organisations talk about being an “equal opportunities employer” or being committed to “Diversity and Inclusion.” But what does this mean in practice?

Respecting and valuing difference helps to create teams which are happier, more co operative places to work and as a consequence offer better service to their customers and achieve higher standards of performance.

This course aims to help Managers understand the legal framework, consider what their role is in creating an inclusive environment within their teams and be more confident in managing situations, where people are behaving in a way that is inappropriate or potentially discriminatory.

Objectives

During the session the participants will have the opportunity to...

  • Consider the case for a diverse workplace
  • The benefits of a diverse workforce for individuals and the organisation
  • Personal experiences of discrimination; direct, indirect, intended or unintended
  • Avoiding discrimination
    • Direct and indirect discrimination

  • Holding a difficult conversation – how to manage a situation where a staff member has behaved inappropriately
