About this course
Diversity is a fundamental feature of our society and within all our workplaces. Recognising and working with this reality is critical for personal and career success. Acknowledging and valuing the contributions of others, no matter what their background, promotes and upholds the values of equity, inclusion and respect. This builds effective organisations that better represent diversity in our wider society. In particular this is important for government agencies as they strive to represent and serve the interests of the public as a whole. It is also conducive to building healthy working relationships and makes for a more harmonious and productive workplace when engaging and collaborating with others. Accordingly, this half day course provides you, as a staff member, with an understanding of the principles and behaviours associated with working with diversity for the benefit of you, your colleagues, your team, your organisation and our society.
