Managing Diversity and Workplace Legislation

Managing diversity is a big challenge for managers and employees. With differences in gender, age, social or cultural background, religion, and sexuality, and in lifestyle choices, perspectives, value systems, beliefs, behaviours, skills and experiences, it is clear that being treated as an equal is not the equivalent as being treated as ‘the same.’ Learning Nexus offers a range of courses to help individuals to understand the benefits and implications of current workplace legislation and how to promote and manage diversity.

With thanks to DAC Beachcroft (international legal business) for their assistance in developing these courses.
