Group Size: 12 Delegates
This event explores what Inclusion, Diversity and Equality is, its importance in the modern workplace and an exploration of the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to value difference and promote inclusion to both colleagues and service users / customers.
McKenzie provide a modern, interactive and engaging Equality and Diversity training event using the very latest development tools including tablet computers for delegates, interactive workplace case studies and a quiz exploring facts relating to diversity and equality.
We aim to engage both hearts and minds in respect of valuing difference and the benefits that diversity of opinion and experience can bring to both teams and organisations.
All events are facilitated by professional, engaging and passionate subject matter experts who are employed by McKenzie. Bespoke events are typically developed to meet the exact needs of our partner organisations so the overview content below is provided as an example only.
Firstly, here is our own BELIEVE model which provides an overview framework of the topics we would typically explore during a one day Equality and Diversity awareness event.
