Equality and Diversity

Overview

The purpose of equality and diversity legislation is to enable employees to work in an environment that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, bullying and victimisation.

In the UK, we live and work in a diverse society, as a result, we regularly come into contact with people who have different backgrounds, views, values and beliefs.  Sometimes, we can be prejudiced without even realising that we are.  The purpose of this Equality and Diversity training course is to look at how we can play our part in promoting a culture free from discrimination.  To do this, it is important to acknowledge current legislation, but no law can truly get under the skin of how people behave.

Therefore, the emphasis of today is on how you can translate this legislation into something meaningful that bring it to life and influence a culture of shared responsibility for equality and diversity.
