What do we really understand about Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)? Interest in EDI has boomed in recent years – both in the wider political spheres of the Western world and in a more focused way in the workplace.

The intense focus on EDI has facilitated open conversations around sensitive subjects – but often with little discussion about how to practically implement EDI policies and practices, as well as training for all your staff to ensure they are aware of their obligations too.

With identity politics in the news on a frequent basis, it’s easy to fixate on awareness and neglect actionable change that implements the values a business wishes to uphold and the training of your staff to support these changes.

However, EDI does not have to be an intimidating subject, and making it more accessible and easier to implement, starts with understanding your obligations as a business owner, people manager or as an employee.

This short workshop will help you to understand what is meant by EDI, how each is different, and what you can do as a business and employee to support EDI and reap the benefits of EDI.
