IncludEU. Building Diverse and Inclusive Workplaces in Europe

FGB new advanced training course, starting on the 22nd of October 2021. Deadline for subscription: 27 September. Don't miss it!

On 22 October 2021, Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini (FGB) and The WorkLife Hub (WLH) will kick-start the first edition of IncludEU – Advanced Training Course on ‘Building Diverse and Inclusive Workplaces in Europe’, a 12-week intensive online course to equip learners with the skills and knowledge to design and implement effective diversity, equity and inclusion programmes at both public and private organisations in a real world based learning environment.

As organisations across Europe are becoming aware of the need to address workplace diversity and inclusion due to a number of factors, such as public pressure, growing transparency, talent shortage, new legislation and to become leaders in their field, they are looking for skilled diversity professionals. And it is not just about reaching targets for a diverse workforce, but about the human aspect of work, creating workplaces that offer a sense of belonging to everyone.

Creating inclusive working environments in the “new normal” requires theoretical knowledge, consolidated skills, familiarity with dedicated tools, capacity to define and monitor indicators, capacity to build and share a vision, as well as strategies to overcome organisational resistance to change.

The unique combination of theory, project work and interactive workshops with highly experienced D&I practitioners, all set in an EU context, will ensure that graduates of the course will be highly equipped to work anywhere in Europe and advance diversity, equity and inclusion in any organisation. With a special focus on European Union legislation and policies, and practices from organisations from a number of different EU countries, this is a unique learning experience for current and future D&I professionals.

This course, designed specifically for HR managers and current or future D&I specialists, builds on the success of the Italian Master in Diversity Management and Gender Equality, answering the growing need for a common European approach to cross-national issues such as diversity and inclusion. The themes covered include ageing, disability, LGBTQI+, gender stereotypes, unconscious biases, gender pay gap, gender budgeting and more.

Deadline for subscriptions: 27 September 2021
