Diversity and Inclusion
Date: Wednesday, 29th May 2019
Time: 9.00 to noon (coffee break included)
Speaker: Dr Roselyn Borg

This topic is becoming more and more of a priority especially since Malta has seen a continuous influx of foreign workers. It is a reality that a number of employees from different backgrounds work together. This is not limited to nationalities but diversity also includes gender and age by way of example. Despite the fact that there a number of laws covering discrimination at the work place, research clearly indicates that diversity is a benefit for any business.
This workshop will also cover the following:

  • What does the law say? Is it just about the law?
  • The meaning of “unconscious bias”
  • The limitations of unconscious bias training.
  • Recruitment and Selection and the employment relationship
  • How to get staff engagement on diversity issues.
  • How to be an inclusive leader.
  • Policies that should be in place
