?I would recommend the diversity workshop to each and every member of staff. The workshop gave concise and an easy to understand overview of legislation and group exercises were interactive and thought provoking. The workshop has assisted me in taking a pro-active, rather than reactive approach to dealing with people, which has improved my communication skills. The workshop has given me an understanding of what diversity is, but more so why it is important to an institution I now feel confident building a rapport and dealing with different groups of people. As a result of the workshop I am more aware of peoples needs and feel comfortable and confident in planning and carrying out my work.?
