Develop your attitudes, skills and knowledge of cultural diversity so you're able to create inclusive environments.

Learn how to create a more inclusive world

Many things contribute to an individual’s identity, including race, ethnicity, gender, age, appearance, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, education, and political beliefs. These things, and more, are what make each of us different. So how can we learn to embrace these differences, and celebrate them? Or to put it in a different way - how can we explore and welcome diversity?

This course will help you develop your knowledge and understanding of diversity, equipping you to create more inclusive and open environments that are welcome to all.

What topics will you cover?
