Course Overview:

Workplace Diversity & Inclusion Training provides participants with a thorough understanding of their role in creating and promoting a safe and welcoming work environment for colleagues and customers. Ensuring that a corporate organization is aware of cultural and organizational bias can provide the foundation for a diverse and inclusive workplace. Employers have a responsibility to create and promote a diverse and inclusive workplace, but what’s more, there is strong evidence to suggest that workplaces that not only participate in, but adopt and encourage diverse and inclusive workplaces have better economic standing and revenue.
