Equal opportunities training

Equal opportunities training

Respecting the principle of equal opportunities is essential for ethical corporate operations. For this to happen, managers and colleagues must be aware of and sensitive to the issue. It is also important that leaders consider equal opportunities at the workplace as an added value that promotes the corporations’ strategic business goals. This requires an attitude training that shapes managers’ and colleagues’ sensitivity towards and engagement with equality.

Equal opportunities training goals

  • raising awareness about equal opportunities,
  • increasing tolerance and inclusion within the organisation.

Equal opportunities training participants will

  • learn with an experience-based approach about how stereotypes and prejudices function and about different types of discrimination,
  • experience what it is like to be in a privileged situation and to be excluded,
  • be able to show greater empathy towards disadvantaged groups,
  • learn to recognise, appropriately handle and prevent any form of discrimination.

We illustrate the topic with several case studies and concrete examples from the lives of other corporations, then propose practices for creating an equal opportunities strategy as well as for promoting corporate processes that respect the above guidelines.
