This short series of speed workshops will address current issues in the world of diversity and inclusion, focusing on the practical realities of identity and the difference in society and the workplace. They are not designed to teach you the intricacies of human rights or equality legislation, but to give you a broad and practical understanding of each topic. In each session, Dr. Chris Bradshaw will present a unique perspective on the realities of managing the modern organisation of all sectors and sizes, whether SME, public sector or multinational, from the standpoint of inclusive cultures and fair treatment for all employees.
In this series we have four sessions at £25 per session, or you can book all four at a special discounted price of £20 each.
