While it seems obvious now, I’d not thought about equality and diversity like this before. Today I learned that equality and diversity affects all of us. Whether its because of gender, race, sexual orientation, bullying, home circumstances, nationality, disability, harassment, age, sickness absence etc.
Run by the Garnett Foundation, today’s session was all about exploring equality and diversity in relation to recruitment and selection. Using a range of interactive approaches, we practised and developed our interviewing skills. While professional actors played a number of diverse parts.
During lively interactive workshops, we explored staff retention and working cultures that foster inclusion and diversity. The training event provided a safe learning environment to highlight areas for improvement in our knowledge and understanding and also to share learning.
While I had heard a lot about the Garnett Foundation, today’s training session met my expectations, and more.
