Introductory Programme


Everyone plays a role in creating inclusive and diverse workplace cultures where individuals thrive. People professionals specialising in or supporting inclusion and diversity (I&D) require an understanding of their workforce, their context and environment, and how to create sustainable change.

This thought-provoking course has been developed by Sukh Pabial, one of CIPD’s experienced Associates. People practitioners and professionals will learn how to approach and build an evidence-based organisational strategy for inclusion and diversity. Transferring their learning into day-to-day work, they will play a role in driving action for workplace behaviours that support and reinforce I&D standards.

Upon completion, delegates will be able to clearly define inclusion and diversity and help develop policies and practice. Supporting and building the capability of I&D leaders, they will enable the business to create a culture of trust which enables people to speak up, feel safe and advocate for others.


The purpose of this course is to:

  • define inclusion and diversity in the world of work
  • gain insight into the importance of organisational strategy for inclusion and diversity
  • use data for inclusion and diversity
  • create a leadership strategy for inclusion
  • build action for workplace behaviours for inclusion and diversity.

Is this course right for me?

This introductory programme is aimed at people practitioners and professionals involved in supporting and implementing inclusion and diversity policies in the workplace. Focusing on individual context, delegates will reflect on challenges, opportunities to improve, effective use of data and how to provide guidance and leadership.
