Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace


What is it?

Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace is one of Royal Holloway's four core equality, diversity and inclusion e-learning courses. It comprises both theoretical and practical perspectives and is a valuable starting point for exploring and understanding attitudes and behaviours, and the impact of these. 

Target audience

The workshop is mandatory for all staff (academic and professional services).

Programme objectives

The aim of Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace is to provide a fundamental basis for understanding issues around inequity and inclusion in the work environment, including the legislative context, which colleagues will build on in the other three core EDI courses: Unconcious Bias, Allyship, and Bullying and Harassment.

Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace introduces colleagues to key concepts relating to equality and diversity including bias, microaggressions, stereotyping and prejudice, and explores how these manifest in the workplace at the individual and institutional level. The module touches on equality legisltation and protected characteristics and includes a range of workplace scenarios that demonstrate ways to embed equity and inclusion practices into day-to-day working life.   


Course length
