Equality & Diversity for Managers Course

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

You may believe that your team is run on merit, but some may see things differently and feel let down or discriminated against.

The UK Equality Act protects against various types of discrimination in respect of nine key characteristics.

Our Equality & Diversity for Managers Course will help your leaders understand how to prevent discrimination and harassment in their teams.

We also have a companion course for all employees entitled Equality & Diversity in the Workplace.
