This course has now taken place.

Implementing workplace diversity and inclusion is not only beneficial from an ethical perspective, it also has direct tangible benefits for the performance of your organisation and the engagement of your employees.

The Equality Act 2010 ensures that all workplaces are fair, equal and compliant with the law, however, developing a strategy which champions diversity and implementing a workplace culture of inclusion can help your organisation achieve greater staff retention and motivation, create a happier work environment and cut costs associated with staff turnover.

Join Employment Law Partner, Matthew Gregson, on this highly interactive one-day training course to learn how to champion diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Gain insight on a number of real life case studies to receive advice on how to respond to certain diversity-related scenarios, how to apply legislation in real terms and get an update on the ever-developing stance of the law.

Attend to hear from Helen Giles, Executive Director for People, at multi award-winning charity St. Mungo’s on their diversity strategy. Learn how their strategy and procedures have been developed, the results in terms of inclusion, engagement and business outcomes, and gain practical tips to replicate back at your organisation.

Work with the Chair to create a positive, innovative strategy to implement back at work and reap the benefits of a happier, more inclusive workforce.
