Equality & Diversity in the Workplace Training Course

Making employment decisions or treating people differently based on stereotypes isn't just bad for business, it's illegal.

In 2010, the UK Government passed the Equality Act, which provides protection against various types of discrimination in respect of nine key characteristics.

Our Equality & Diversity in the Workplace Course helps your employees prevent discrimination and harassment across activities from recruitment and training to promotion.

For those in leadership, we have a companion course entitled Equality & Diversity for Managers.
