This course will look at practices that can build a diverse and inclusive workforce to attract the best talent and create an environment where people want to stay and succeed.
We will look at all aspects of diversity with a focus on gender diversity for this one-day course. We will explain how unconscious bias can hinder our efforts to be inclusive and more importantly what we can do to address it.
