In this 7-week, fully online course you can develop an awareness of issues surrounding equality and diversity, as part of an induction programme or just for personal development.

Companies are legally required to follow a set of practices to tackle discrimination and ensure equality for their employees. If you want to learn about equality and diversity in different contexts, this course will give you a great understanding of the different issues affecting equality and diversity in society today.
