Diversity & Inclusion 1: Core Values
About the course
Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging are about improving the ways in which an organisation handles the management of people from minority groups. Managing diversity involves ensuring, through recruitment, talent management and learning and development policies and practices, that the right sort of mix exists in the organisation and that the skills and abilities of typically underrepresented or marginalised groups are actively appreciated. In this course we will discuss Diversity as a strategic human resources strategy in achieving a more inclusive workplace.
