Course description

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in the Workplace

This course is designed for any professional with a keen interest in gaining an introductory understanding of DEI and how to practically implement such a strategy. It looks at how to identify and respond to discrimination in the workplace and offers guidance on creating an inclusive working environment.

As the success of a properly designed DEI intervention lies within each person, it is important to grow on a personal level as well. We need to take our own perceptions into consideration and how that may result in barriers to ultimate diversity. This course offers the exposure to relevant professional skills to assist you to develop relevant emotional intelligence skills such as sensitivity, awareness, and collaboration to enable you to overcome barriers and ensure effective personal growth.

A practical DEI strategy including workplace demographics, DEI targets, and goals will be developed during the course to enable you to implement and drive a DEI plan in your organization.
