Equality, diversity and inclusion: the essentials (Scotland) - digital event


This 3-hour digital event looks at the essential aspects of equality, diversity and inclusion that all organisations need to be aware of, including the legal position and best practice for promoting a diverse and inclusive workplace.

Equality, diversity and inclusion is essential for any successful business.
Creating a diverse and inclusive workplace is not only morally right but it also has business advantages, such as increased staff engagement, retention and productivity. 

The consequences of getting it wrong can be costly in terms of employment tribunal cases and reputational damage. 

This digital event will provide you with an understanding of the law surrounding equality, diversity and inclusion, as well as implications of getting it wrong. You will receive practical tips for promoting a diverse and inclusive workplace and good practice guidance for handling employee issues should they arise in your workplace.

Delivered via Zoom, you will have the opportunity to interact with our knowledgeable trainers and explore some of the challenges you may be facing.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.
