Strategic Approaches to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. There is a moral, financial and legal business case for excellent practice in equality, diversity and inclusion in an organisational context and a need for a culture of support and wellbeing. Ensuring it is led effectively at a strategic level requires knowledge, understanding, skills, behaviours and tenacity to keep pace with the momentum of change. Strategically, equality, diversity and inclusion matters. An understanding of the topic not only impacts on the success of strategic objectives but it mitigates risk and enables a culture of support and wellbeing to thrive.

The aim of this 3-day equality and diversity training course is to enable senior leaders to develop an in-depth understanding of equality, diversity, and inclusion at a strategic level, and identify how to best integrate key objectives into the organisation and remove structural inequality. Leaders will have the opportunity to critically assess structural inequality within an organisational and societal context, discuss approaches to comply with legal and good practice requirements, and to appraise the influence of equality, diversity, and inclusion on strategic objectives.

In a consultative and collaborative environment, the diversity and inclusion course will enable leaders to develop strategic priorities for equality, diversity, and inclusion, develop change plans to integrate strategy into the culture of the organisation, and evaluate the outcomes financially and socially.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish.
