Diversity and Inclusion
To create a programme which combined tailored scenes and skills development practice and raise awareness of pinpointed topics and stimulate discussion.
What we did:
We conducted diagnostic research to identify the precise issues within the department, including informal interviews where both problematic and successful working practices were discussed.
We designed workshop sessions, involving a healthy mix of discussion, debate, and engagement. The interactive training featured scenarios reflecting the departmental culture and focussed on challenging inappropriate behaviour to create more; inclusive departments.
In addition to this, an action plan for change was formulated and implemented to encourage and sustain models of good working practice.
Reduce Bullying and harassment
92% of delegates affirmed that the event had made them think about their own language and behaviour and 100% fed back that they would recommend the training to a colleague.
Participants described the training as engaging, thought-provoking and informative.
“You know the training has had a positive impact when the staff are still talking about the training opportunity a week later! The training was outstanding.”
