Diversity Training/ Bespoke Training

What Can Our Diversity Training Do For You?


The Ministry of Defence, Army, Navy and RAF operate in high-pressure and often life-threatening situations. In such a context, it is essential to build teams that can work together effectively and efficiently. To achieve this, fairness, inclusion and diversity must be at the heart of the operational model.


Creating an inclusive environment where everyone can flourish and feel valued is not just a moral and legal obligation but also a business imperative. Progressive organisations recognise that inclusion and diversity improve business effectiveness, help to attract and retain talent and drive innovation.


However, building an inclusive culture is not an easy task. It requires an organisation-wide effort, driven by leadership and underpinned by policies, procedures, and training. This can be challenging, in complex hierarchical workplaces.


At The Garnett Foundation, we understand the importance of driving culture change and building inclusive working cultures. Our diversity training programmes are designed to help organisations create an inclusive culture of acceptable behaviours, fairness and respect. We take people on a journey, raising awareness of the value of diversity and inclusion, and the need to create a working environment where everyone can thrive.


Our training programmes cover a range of topics, including unconscious bias, protected characteristics, bullying, harassment and discrimination. We work across the defence sector designing training programmes to meet specific learning outcomes, ensuring that each programme is engaging, informative and relevant.


Through our training, we help organisations create a genuinely inclusive and diverse working culture that promotes respect for others, fairness and shared values. By winning the hearts and minds of the whole workforce, we help organisations build effective and efficient teams that can work together to achieve operational effectiveness.


With our diversity training you can expect us to cover a range of topics such as:


  • Creating inclusive workforces

  • Specific focus on protected characteristics

  • Raising awareness around diversity and inclusion

  • Developing inclusive leadership skills

  • Microaggressions

  • Culture and values

  • Climate assessment focus groups

  • Unconscious bias

  • Bystander responsibility

  • Tackling bullying and harassment

  • Dignity and respect at work

  • Inclusive recruitment

  • Specific issue training, e.g., mental health, reasonable adjustment 


So, How Do We Do It?

For almost 25 years, we have been passionate about implementing transformative behavioural and cultural change. Our unique approach to diversity and inclusion training sets us apart, and we are proud of the impact we have made. Whether using live, virtual or other media approaches, our methods are creative, engaging and charged with energy that touches everyone involved.


We understand that every organisation is unique, and therefore, our learning initiatives are bespoke. We work with our clients to design programmes that meet their specific needs, ensuring that their reality and issues are mirrored in powerful performances. Our immersive research process enables us to create realistic scenarios that help individuals recognise situations, characters and behaviours.


We believe that challenging mindsets is key to creating an inclusive workplace. Our skilful facilitation techniques encourage individuals to take an active role in their own learning and recognise the part they play on the journey to an inclusive workplace. By creating a safe and supportive learning environment, we enable individuals to engage with challenging topics and come away with a deeper understanding of the value of diversity and inclusion.
