Course Details

Diversity in the workplace has been a hot topic over the last few years. It's becoming more common for people to expect a business to have more than an Equality and Diversity policy but to also show how they are taking steps to create a more diverse workforce.

In this webinar, Jemma will take you through her expert advice on how employers, employees and managers of every level can improve workplace diversity and how diversity can benefit your organisation.

In this session, Jemma Fairclough-Haynes will cover the following:

  • Understand what Equality and Diversity are and why it is important.
  • Identify protected characteristics.
  • Acknowledge the benefits that differences can do for the workplace.
  • The positive impact on employee impression and business brand.
  • Understand how we can encourage Equality and Diversity in every process.


Attendees will come away from this session with a fresh perspective on how diversity benefits a wide area of their business and what actions they can take to provide a more inclusive environment.
