Is this course for me?
In the workplace, especially in the humanitarian sector, you will frequently interact with people from different backgrounds. You may share many interests, but your cultural background could be different. You may be from the same country, but have different religious beliefs. Or, you might be the same age, but have different educational experiences. 

An inclusive work environment enables an organisation to leverage and value different perspectives and backgrounds, and to foster innovation and collaboration. More personally, your ability to understand and respect these differences will benefit you in your career. This course can help you to understand the importance of diversity, and to promote inclusive behaviours.
