Can you afford not to make more rapid progress on equity, diversity and inclusion?

The media is full of stories of organisations that have failed on EDI, costing them hundreds of £000s and untold damage to their reputations. In the last few weeks alone:

Getting EDI wrong is a major risk for many organisations.

Yet the people charged with addressing EDI – HR Leaders – can find themselves ill equipped. There are no compulsory elements of HR leaders’ CIPD qualifications that cover EDI. Specialist agency Full Colour decided it was time to do something about this.

Full Colour has developed a Level 7 EDI Certificate for HR Leaders. The nine-month programme takes EDI theory and turns it into practical actions HR leaders.

Developed and delivered by experienced leaders, EDI specialists and HR professionals the programme will include live taught sessions, 1:1 and group coaching, online learning and more. Participants will be taken step by step through:

  • The fundamentals of EDI: core concepts, the history of systemic bias, UK law, the impact of discrimination in the workplace and how current “hot” HR topics relate to EDI
  • How to assess where your organisation is now: your organisation’s context and its impact on EDI, how to use HR data to drive change, how to assess existing EDI initiatives and their impact, culture and EDI, how to assess your systems’ impact on EDI
  • Understanding bias: how to uncover your own biases and their impact on others, how to identify systemic bias in your organisation, psychological safety and how to create it
  • How to create an EDI strategy that works: how to influence internal enablers of change, how to make a business case for EDI, how to involve people in shaping EDI effectively, how to develop a communications strategy on EDI
