Essentials of Anti-discrimination Training

Header image

Although most people are aware that ‘discrimination’ as a concept is generally unacceptable and illegal, many can be unaware of the sometimes subtle and indirect ways that policies and behaviours can be discriminatory. This Essentials of Anti-discrimination online compliance training module is designed to promote an awareness of what discrimination is, whom it affects, and how it can occur.

In addition to examining the negative consequences that can arise from a discriminatory environment, the training also focuses on the positive benefits that diversity can bring to a workplace and how to foster a cohesive, productive and inclusive environment that promotes equal employment opportunity.
