The cornerstone of effective diversity training is ensuring that management and employees have an experience that raises awareness through self-discovery, changing behaviors by identifying strengths and gaps and committing to change, assessing your organisational audience and applying the appropriate learning and development strategies. Increasingly, when diversity training is developed improperly, it is fraught with legal risk and may cause backlash and produce negative impact. This program will provide best practices and ways to create the right training for your organisation.
Enhance your skills in developing and delivering diversity training by exploring:
- Methods for identifying and planning diversity training needs
- Training techniques, models and ideas that get diversity messages across
- Critical facilitation and delivery skills for successful diversity training and information dissemination
