Diversity Series from PI Courses

Publishing Ireland are delighted to announce a brand new series of courses based on Diversity and Inclusion. The Series, run in partnership with OpenMinds, will take place online over four modules, with modules one and two taking place on the 8th & 9th of June and modules four and five on the 7th & 8th of September.

The modules cover areas such as diversity and inclusion management, dimensions of culture and what happens when cultures merge in a diverse working environment, unconscious bias and its impacts and will introduce participants to a Diversity, Equality, Inclusion and Belonging “toolkit” to help develop a more inclusive working environment.

All four modules can be booked for €40 or attend the one that appeals to you the most for just €15. You can book all sessions or just one session HERE
