Diversity and Inclusion Training

Live Online Info Session

Join us for a live online info session about our Diversity and Inclusion Training course with instructor Sharon Seidler. Ashton College staff will also be available to advise and answer your questions about admissions and other general questions about the course.

In the course, students will examine diversity and inclusion in the workplace through the lens of an employer and employee, what it means for team leaders and managers, including conflict management, communication skills, and team building. Contemporary issues related to race, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, religion, ability, age, nationality and ethnicity will also be explored in this course. This course explores what Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion look like inside and outside of the office, and how we can transform today’s world for a better tomorrow.

We look forward to connecting with you online! To find out more about the course:
