20 December 2013

The Department for Employment and Learning has commissioned The Rainbow Project to manage a programme in Northern Ireland, aimed at private and third sector organisations, that will provide support and guidance in best practice in equality and diversity, as well as offering free training on Sexual Orientation Awareness.

The training allows participants to gain an insight into best practice in this important area as well prompting the discussion around reviewing and updating existing policies. It is aimed at HR managers, line managers and business owners who are responsible for setting Equality and Diversity strategy and who have an interest in promoting a culture of engagement via positive interventions.

Consultancy support in the form of reviewing existing policies and identifying the need for additional policies to ensure organisations are compliant, is also available until September 2014.

Promoting equality and diversity in the workplace not only demonstrates compliance with the law but earns organisations a reputation as being open, creative and forward thinking. Working in an “LGB (Lesbian, Gay & Bisexual) friendly environment” has been shown to have a positive impact at work. It fosters openness and confidence, improved work productivity and effectiveness as well as loyalty and pride in the organisation.

If you would like to discuss how this could benefit your organisation, please contact edith@rainbow-project.org or call on 028 90319030.
