And in our final section, we’ll come back to the ideal workplace. And we’ll touch upon learning about, embracing and celebrating each others’ differences and the business advantages to having a diverse workforce - that values its employees and has structures in place to support each person.

Not too long but still in depth enough

I like the improvements made since I last did it. Harassment part was a good - to get a definition of what this actually is. Nice to have text and video version. Only down side was the bits where it said some types of discrimination didn't apply to marriage and maternity - I couldn't understand why and how that would play out/look in real life.

Very informative

The role play elements broke up the video training, and added more interest. The sections were of the right length and built-in breaks is a nice addition.

Far too long for this topic.

Why is this trainingimportant?


It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

平等和多样性是承认everybody has a right to fair and equal treatment, irrespective of age, gender, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic. Originally, workplace legislation surrounding these rights was considered something of a ‘grey area’; with around 116 separate laws existing under the broad umbrella of ‘equality and diversity’. In October 2010, these were, at last, merged into one coherent act:The Equality Act 2010.

The Equality Actincludes 'Protected Characteristics' which are differences between people which cannot be used as reasons to treat them any differently. Doing this would be against the law.

The Equality Actalso includes 'Prohibited Conduct' which are actions that people are not allowed to do to each other on the basis of any of the protected characteristics. This is illegal too.

Protected characteristics include: age; disability; gender reassignment; marriage and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race; religion or belief; sex; sexual orientation.
