Respect and Inclusion in the Workplace: Online Training

Diversity and inclusion are about embracing the many ways we differ from each other. This includes factors like ethnicity, culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation and sexual identity.

This self-paced online training examines acceptable and unacceptable attitudes and behaviours. The focus is on practical strategies that support diversity and inclusion and foster respectful workplaces.
