The WISE Introduction to Diversity and Inclusion course provides an overview of diversity, inclusion, equity and equality.
Find out what diversity means and why it’s important in the modern workforce.
The correlation between improved diversity and stronger business results is striking. There is a wealth of evidence that demonstrates that a diverse workforce makes companies more adaptable, more productive, and more responsive to what their customers are telling them. It’s clear that to get ahead in STEM, companies should be changing their demographics – and that failing to do so will mean being left behind.
The course is broken down into 4 sections and is delivered over a 4 hour period. Training can be delivered face-to-face (when appropriate) or online. It is interactive and asks participants to share experiences, talk through scenarios and contribute to discussions. In a 4 hour (half-day online workshop) we recommend a maximum of 10-12 people to allow for this interaction to take place.
The Introduction to Diversity and Inclusion workshop can be tailored to suit a variety of audiences from open awareness courses through to bespoke corporate offerings. WISE has significant experience in helping companies to effect cultural change and understands the specific challenges in the Engineering and STEM sector. This course provides practical advice on how to improve and incorporate diversity and inclusion with a specific focus on the STEM sector. Where possible, we will present statistics so we can reflect the course attendees and sector.
