Equality & Diversity
Does your organisation have a good understanding of Equality & Diversity? Has it adopted it as one of its core values? Poor practice in the workplace regarding this is often due to ignorance rather than intent. This course equips you with all you need to encourage your place of work to adopt a culturally diverse and inclusive ethos.
In any organisation, there should be an outworking of Equality & Diversity. In health and social care, it is crucial that the workplace demonstrates it in every aspect. Do you know how to define cultural diversity? Do you know what responsibilities you are expected to take on within this as far as UK legislation is concerned?
These issues can be complex, especially when it comes to knowing how to challenge poor practice in your own workplace. You should be able to do so without fear of recrimination.
This course will show you the importance of positive action, how to identify and challenge poor practice, different scenarios that you may encounter at work and the laws that you and your organisation need to know and respect regarding Equality & Diversity.
During the session, you'll cover:
What Equality & Diversity really is
How the law views Equality & Diversity and how your organisation should be encompassing it
What is meant by the ‘primary’ and ‘secondary’ dimensions of diversity
How to be effective in promoting Equality & Diversity
How to recognise poor practice
The do’s and dont's of positive behaviour.
This half-day course comprises an engaging mix of activities with fellow learners (maximum fifteen delegates). You’ll be asked to complete a simple multiple-choice assessment after you take the course. You will receive a certificate once you have passed the assessment.
