This heightened level of awareness has meant that competitive organisations now know that diversity and inclusion strategies are essential to the success of their business performance and community relationships.

This workshop allows you to learn from best practice and research in practical skills and applicable concepts to harness the potential of diversity.

You will explore concepts such as unconscious bias, privilege and intersectionality through relevant case studies. You’ll also participate in discussions and reflection to enable a better understanding of our own unconscious biases and the social mechanisms that can reinforce and sustain them.

The workshop is not overly prescriptive or theoretical; instead, it focuses on direct application in workplaces, providing transferable concepts applicable to all diversity areas and work roles, as well as in your wider community.
