This Blended Learning Course aims to help you develop your understanding of the processes behind discrimination, to build on your knowledge and skills and thus support you on your journey to become more and inclusive and influence the culture of your organisation in the same way.
Most of the times, we do not aim to discriminate, and most of what is behind our behaviours is not easy to perceive in a conscious way. With this course, we intend to make these processes conscious and thus reduce their influence on the decisions we make every day.
– Inform about the Charter and its objectives
– Promote understanding of the basic concepts of the Charter: diversity, inclusion, stereotypes, prejudice, unconscious bias, micro-messages and the discrimination chain
– Promote the development of diversity and inclusion practices and policies in the organization
We believe that these leaning objectives are best achieved by offering informative and reflective video lessons (90 minutes) and a face to face session (from 3 hours up to 7 hours). The face to face session will allow you to experience some of the concepts learned in the video lessons, ask questions to an experienced facilitator and deepen your reflection about them. These sessions will also promote networking and interaction with people from different organisations and/or between people from your organisation that share the same purpose.
We hope this course allows you to start or continue your journey to become more inclusive. It is a lengthy process, and it can get lonely too. The more we know, the more we realise we need to keep learning. With that in mind, we also offer additional materials, exercises and resources for you to continue your journey towards inclusiveness on your own. We wish you a wonderful journey!
The course is free of charge, but we will only make it available for professionals that aim to use it with a group of people from one or several organisations.
If you wish to be a facilitator and start your own class to take this course, we also provide a facilitators guide with the session plan.
