D&I Awareness Training - Global Diversity Practice

D&I Awareness Training

D&I Awareness Training

At GDP we work with our clients to create bespoke D&I awareness programmes that address their particular needs.


Managing Diversity and Inclusion requires understanding, knowledge, empathy and sensitivity to difference with a commitment to developing inclusive behaviours and actions. When Diversity and Inclusion is well managed it can enhance team competence and confidence, ensure all our voices are heard, our multiple perspectives are encouraged and new paradigms are created to recognise the visible and invisible differences which make up the rich fabric of our workplaces.

Harnessing and leveraging these differences, perspectives and talents will allow companies to better position themselves to adapt to the ever changing global demands that will not only improve productivity and staff morale but also increase customer expectations. A multicultural, talented, and trained workforce is better equipped to understand the demographics of the marketplace it serves and is better positioned to thrive in that marketplace.

The business case for investing in D&I is that these initiatives allows such a diverse workforce to feel a sense of belonging, which in turn increases their commitment to the company and allows each of them to contribute in a unique manner. All employees want to have good and harmonious relationship with their follow employers and leaders; they want supportive mentors that can help them achieve their individual goals.

Our Solution

We can ensure we develop the competence of your employees to become aware of all the various diversity strands which make up the mosaic and provide compelling and relevant information by raising awareness. We can deliver single strand awareness such as Gender Equity training or Cross Cultural skills, covering the full spectrum of relevant issues within your regions, countries or companies. We have the solution.

Our sessions ensure you recognise the Business Critical and Risk Management aspects which in turn adversely affect employee morale, engagement, talent progression, employer branding, service user, customer and community expectations and experience.

Our D&I Awareness programmes range from delivery of seminars on the value of D&I right through to a provision of cascade and corporate roll out programmes.

Our corporate wide experience spans national and global roll out of Diversity and Inclusion Awareness Session.

We can also help develop your capacity through train the trainers, webinars and e-learning.


Greater diversity awareness not only brings a greater skills base to our delegates but also leads to enhanced opportunities, better performance, improved retention, and offers greater opportunities for innovation and responsiveness.

We encourage you to celebrate and value the richness of Diversity and Inclusion, create rich environments and nurture your workforce thus reflecting our changing global landscape.
