Diversity and Inclusion - from Awareness to Action

Practical things, proven to work, that you can do as a Manager to support diversity & inclusion in your team

It's important to have a space where you can be open and honest, to share the thoughts and ask the questions that you really have around Diversity & Inclusion. Our trainer, Dana excels in creating that space for Managers and in taking an evidence-based approach to Diversity & Inclusion and helping organisations to do better through practical and not theoretical approaches. Activities and exercises focus specifically on your organisation or team, giving you the help and support that you need to face the challenges in your own workplace.

  • The different types of diversity and how to foster an environment that supports them
  • In and out groups, and more importantly what it feels like to be part of an out group
  • Unconscious bias and overt and covert discrimination
  • Practical things, proven to work, that you can do as a Manager to support diversity & inclusion in your team

Who is it for?

Anyone who wants to understand diversity and learn practical methods for making real change.

Dana is an Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) expert who helps companies build diverse brands and create inclusive cultures where team members want to stick around. She has worked across a wide range of industries and organisations - from startups to government agencies, leading consultancies and titans of industry. Dana has designed and developed EDI programmes and initiatives, shaped policies and helped companies get to grips with their diversity reality by uncovering and providing solutions for the things getting in the way of creating a workforce reflective of the world we live in.

When it comes to learning in the EDI space, Dana believes that engaging sessions that captivates learners result in key learning points that are remembered for much longer, and make it back to the workplace where they can bring about real change. Her workshops are interactive, engaging and informative, with actionable, real outcomes you can put into practice immediately. She brings content, theory and evidence-based approaches alongside insights into lived experiences and stories. Diversity and Inclusion is an emotive topic, so she works hard to create a space that is safe and supportive to enable learning. This approach encourages dialogue, and gives participants the chance to explore, enquire, discuss and find their own learning. Join her to start or continue your EDI learning journey, have the conversations and ask the questions about EDI that make the difference.


Key lessons were on the value of Allies, what practical steps we could take to make genuine changes and mostly, that its my responsibility to educate myself on how to be a better manager and more inclusive. I want to create a sense of belonging for all our staff - and this session gave some useful hints and tips on simple steps to start or refocus the journey towards that. Excellent facilitation on Zoom - and lots of time to listen and be listened too.
I found this training thought provoking, inspiring and action orientated
Dana the trainer was excellent and really good at explaining. I think this course was a real eye opener to a lot of people and I would highly recommend it to all managers
