Equality, diversity and inclusion can deliver very real benefits to both organisations and the individuals who work within them. And managers have a vital role to play in creating inclusive work environments that allow these benefits to be realised.

With our Managing Diversity online training course, you can provide your managers with the specific knowledge and understanding they need to manage diverse teams effectively. The course explores the practical things managers can do to promote diversity, resolve problems, and create an environment in which everyone feels valued, respected and capable of achieving their full potential.

We’re really pleased with the courses and excited about launching them to staff and students. We’re confident that they’re going to enable us to deliver equality and diversity training more effectively and to more people than ever before.
