Event description


Leading Diversity – ‘getting the mix to work together’

We all bring to work with us our diverse perspectives. However, few recognise that it can be demanding to manage such a group of people and to realise the full benefits from diverse thinking and perspectives.

The NDS Leading Diversity training program will increase your toolkit of leadership skills and will focus on the leader’s role in providing a supportive working environment.

Each participant with develop deeper understanding that each individual is unique and brings diverse perspectives shaped by their ethnicity, gender, age, nationality, origin, disability, sexual orientation, education and religion.

The program will focus on leader’s role in setting/maintaining standards and ensuring the right conditions are in place for each person to achieve their full potential.

Participants will:

  • Be introduced to key concepts, tools and techniques to counter the effects of our own ‘biases’
  • Develop skills to interpret and respond appropriately to the culturally defined behaviour of others
  • Be presented with practical strategies to help them build inclusive effective teams in which each person can contribute the best of their abilities

The purpose of the Leading Diversity Training Program is the continued capacity building of the disability workforce.

The program will consist of 2 x full day workshops.

After the first workshop students will complete 3 weeks on-the-job training to demonstrate skills in the workplace via work-place based projects.

Students will return to class for 1 full day workshop to present projects and finalise assessments.
