Human Resources, Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity is having a seat at the table. Inclusion is having a voice. Belonging is having that voice heard.

Our world is a diverse mosaic of cultures, genders, ages, abilities and backgrounds.

And the research clearly shows that workplaces that embrace diversity and create a welcoming culture for everyone enjoy a range of benefits such as higher productivity, higher loyalty and work quality, lower absentee and presenteeism, better working relationships, lower staff turnover and are simply better places to work.

These insightful courses explore the many facets of workplace diversity and shifts the inclusion paradigm from something we do to accommodate minorities, to something we do so everyone feels welcome and included.

Exploring concepts of intersectionality, personal difference, privilege, cultural inclusion, unconscious bias and systemic advantage, we invite participants to become collaborators in creating a great workplace and celebrating diverse strengths.
