DIVERSITY & INCLUSION TRAINING for companies
 

THE PURPOSE WORKSHOP

Why does purpose matter? Working with the C-suite team, we look at what purpose looks like in other companies and why we need a ‘WHY’.

Outcomes:

  • Revisit or write your purpose

  • Align your leaders around it

  • Work out how this can track into values, behaviours and rewards

WHAT’S YOUR INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY WHY?

This is an intensive half day workshop with your C-Suite team to define ‘WHY’ you believe (and invest) in inclusion and diversity, to align it to your business goals and to look at how it fits in with your brand proposition. To create change, the leadership have to set a clear vision and vision statement for I&D, then look at the ‘mission’, focusing on how I&D can create a better culture, motivated teams and equality for all. To really drive an inclusive culture, you have to also understand that this will challenge some of the ways ‘you do things around here’ and what the norm is to make sure they begin to include everyone.

WRITE YOUR INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY STRATEGY

Once you have a vision, mission and everyone is aligned around the benefits, what’s the strategy? Ideally, we do this off the back of the Equality Standard so your data can inform your strategy and you can set goals to measure against. You can’t do everything at once so we look at some core pillars of your approach to I&D. This might include aligning your middle managers, focusing on your workforce composition (hiring for BAME, gender), looking at a succession plan, and focus on certain groups (mental health, neurodiversity, etc).

IGNITE YOUR STRATEGY (run with the above for a one-day workshop)

Once you have established your key stakeholders, we can run a 3-hour workshop to pin responsibilities, roles and how the strategy will be implemented within the business. This is critical, as a practical action plan will drive your efforts forward with a calendar lay down.

CO-WRITE YOUR CODE OF CONDUCT

This is a 2-hour inclusive 'TalkShop' (half talk, half workshop) run by ex-Google L&D trainer Jo Hagger, which aims to get companies discussing what's 'appropriate' and 'inappropriate' behaviour at work. Yes, it’s fun, interactive and shame-free.

ACTION ON BIAS

Everyone has bias. Understanding bias should be key training for everyone in your organisation. No, this is not a tick-box exercise. This is how you understand unconscious bias, what it is, and how to can action it in your day-to-day work life. We break this into three sections: discover, explore, commit.

EVERYONE NEEDS MENTAL HEALTH

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training courses teach people to spot the symptoms of mental health issues, offer initial help and guide a person towards support. We don’t teach people to be therapists, but we do teach people to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis - and even potentially stop a crisis from happening. We have training options to suit a range of timescales and budgets, from basic mental health awareness sessions to a full Mental Health First Aider qualification. They are all designed to benefit employees, line managers, HR professionals, OH workers and senior leaders alike - to let all your people meet the challenges of the workplace head on.

KNOW YOUR EQUALITIES ACT

Together, we look at the Equalities Act 2010 to make sure everyone understands this and how it aligns with your company’s key diversity policies, including how they can deal with some of the behaviours they can champion in the workplace. We also train managers on the link between creating an inclusive workplace and how this is aligned to the overall business and strategy by providing a welcoming environment. Training also covers how managers can resolve conflicts between team members and encourage staff to work in a respectful and collaborative manner, making sure they also know how to recognise and challenge bias and ‘inappropriate’ banter within a team. We also cover specific issues which may arise in managing diversity.


REWIRE THE WAY YOU HIRE

When you understand bias, you’ll see how it can show up in your recruitment process. We tailor this workshop based on your own recruitment system, look at the biases within it then work out how you might mitigate that bias to create an inclusive end-to-end process. We look at (and meet) some people who find the system challenging, including those with disabilities (who literally may not be able to get through your door), to dyslexics, who may have their CVs discounted because of typos. We also look at your supply chain, including your recruitment partners.

INCLUSION IN CREATIVITY

Inclusion and diversity starts with the teams who make the work, but it needs to also be embedded throughout the creative process. We look at the brief to work to production process and explore how bias may creep in with stereotypes (often seen as cognitive shortcuts) or a lack of a ‘diverse lens’ on the work. We workshop examples of live briefs and challenge teams to think differently.
