Diversity & Inclusion Training
Fostering a diverse and equitable workplace culture isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s essential for your people and it’s good for your business. Whether you run a small business or have hundreds of staff, workplace diversity and inclusion training is vital to help you achieve this.
What is diversity training?
Diversity training addresses a range of issues such as unconscious bias, discrimination, gender and racial bias, and microaggressions, which helps employees become aware of diversity issues in the workplace, their own beliefs of diversity and provides them with skills to help them interact, collaborate and work more closely with people who have different qualities to their own.
From a business perspective, equality and diversity training is proven to have a number of benefits such as increased productivity and collaboration, and protects a business from the risk of discrimination claims – empowering those employees from underrepresented groups to feel more confident and valued in the workplace.
Sharing your company’s commitment to inclusion, by embedding workplace diversity training at the onboarding stage, can let new employees know that this is important to you and that the attributes that make them unique matter to your business.
The importance of diversity training
Why is diversity training important? Staff training is the perfect way to create a workforce made up of people with the consistent level of understanding and respect needed to tackle inequality and discrimination. By informing employees about the different types of discrimination, the contents of the Equality Act, and the standards that need to be met, your business will run smoother all round.
There are many other benefits of diversity training in the workplace including team cohesion, greater creativity and resilience, improved productivity and higher levels of employee engagement. Research has also shown that businesses that have a more diverse and inclusive culture are not only seen as more desirable to work for, but they also manage to outshine and outperform their competitors. By helping you to promote a fairer, more tolerant and diverse working environment, training really can have a huge impact on the general attitudes within the company.
Diversity training for your team
Our online diversity training for employees will help raise awareness of diversity issues to empower employees to create a respectful and inclusive workplace. The courses aim to increase the learner’s understanding of their own unconscious biases and steps they can take to combat them in the workplace. Through learning more about diversity, employees will gain a better understanding about some of the qualities and characteristics that make us different including concepts such as personality traits, cross-cultural communication, traditions and customs around the world, neurodiversity, LGBTQ+ terminology and mental health.
Our courses offer a complete source of the essential information needed to create a respectful workplace which also complies with regulations. Employees will learn:
- The key principles of the Equality Act 2010
- How to identify and make reasonable adjustments
- How to recognise protected characteristics
- How to complete an Equality Impact Assessment
- Ways to recognise and combat unconscious bias
- How to be an effective ally
- Understand the purpose of Public Sector Equality Duty
- The importance of a respectful, inclusive workplace
This collection is made up of 15 new courses, 5 longer courses and 10 microlearning courses to support a multiyear training strategy.
Our online courses will enable your business to take a huge step towards creating the inclusive and respectful culture you need. This simply can’t be done without educating your employees, and we offer the best possible way to do this.
Diversity training for employers
Building and leading a diverse workforce has become a key focus for executives in every business sector and geography in recent years, reflecting social movements such as #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, changes in the political landscape such as Brexit, the increase in global immigration, and the growing body of evidence proving that diverse teams perform better.
Everyone has a duty to uphold the principles of equality and diversity but as an employer or manager, you have enhanced responsibilities. Making employment decisions or treating people differently based on stereotypes is not only bad for business, it’s also illegal.
Our diversity training for employers will help your executives understand how to develop an inclusive mindset through learning how to mitigate self-bias, and how to prevent harassment and discrimination in their teams. Through learning more about the Equality Act via our diversity training for executives, they will become familiar with the nine different protected categories and direct and indirect discrimination.
