Assignment: Lead Diversity & Inclusion

Identifying diversity issues and managing these effectively in the workplace through contemporary initiatives and sound procedures


This assessment consists of a series of tasks which include

1. Research of legislation - key aspects, requirements and complaint processes

2. Identification of current initiatives and the potential for integrating these in the management of a diverse workforce

3. Development of a diversity policy which can be implemented in a diverse workplace based on the values identified from the current projects and based on legal requirements identified

4. Development of an anti-bullying/anti-harassment policy with clear procedures for informal and formal complaint stages

You are required to address all tasks set out below. The website link provided is current as of 27 September 2014 including the information relating to current initiatives.

Whilst EEO legislation covers the general aspects related to Equal Opportunity Employment, the intention of this project is to identify contemporary aspects which would be beneficial for a diverse team in the workplace. You are encouraged to evaluate current programs and identify which aspects can be implemented in a sustainable manner in industry.

The link and information provided on the websites are sources of information and all responses you provide here must be clearly referenced. Policies and procedures must be your own work.

Your trainer will provide you with feedback within agreed timelines as outlined to you.
