Equip yourself to meet the Diversity Challenge
Maximising the potential of our diverse workforce.
The UK workforce is more diverse that it has ever been. There are more women, ethnic minorities and disabled people in the workforce than ever before, moreover the workforce is getting older. It is estimated that by 2011 white non-disabled men will only make up a fifth of the labour market.
For organisations to continue to be successful, they must recruit, retain and promote talented people without prejudice. Equally, it is critical that the existing workforce welcomes these people and provides a secure, inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and their talents fully utilised.
Diversity means celebrating difference and affording everyone the same respect and value – regardless of things like age, ethnicity or disability.
Developed with leading occupational psychology practice Pearn Kandola, this course looks at the practicalities of managing diversity in the workplace and the benefits a diverse workforce can bring.
Diversity is all about celebrating difference and valuing and respecting everyone in the workplace – regardless of factors such as their ethnic background, religion, sexuality, age or gender.
Produced in association with leading occupational psychology practice Pearn Kandola, The diversity challenge combines key learning points with original drama and analysis from diversity experts to encourage your employees to challenge long-held misconceptions and prejudices about race, age, disability and all the other ways in which we differ and appreciate the true benefits of a diverse workforce.

- what we mean by ‘diversity’ at work

- how to actively support and manage a diverse workplace
