Cultural Diversity Training Session

Time: 10am – 11am
Location: Zoom (book here)
Free online course on race in the workplace.
Gain basic information on improving cultural diversity in the workplace. This course will cover:
- Techniques for attracting a culturally diverse workforce
- Barriers and challenges faced by BAME staff members
- How to create a more racially diverse environment
This FREE introductory course provides participants with a starting point to think about strategies to improve cultural diversity in the workplace.
Conversations about race worldwide have intensified since the unlawful killing of George Floyd in the US. Britain continues to face its own race related challenges with the disproportionate numbers of BAME people in the criminal justice system, rising unemployment rates for black people and the lack of BAME leadership in the workplace.
Places of work can be filled with questions, opinions, misinformation, often without knowledge on how to engage in honest and informed dialogue about race. Strawberry Words enables difficult conversations about race to take place in safe environments. We have been doing this for the last two decades.
This session is led by Rebbecca Hemmings, Director of Strawberry Words Ltd. She been working in this area for the last twenty years. She is a founding member of Blackstory Partnership (Birmingham’s Black History Month organisation), has won an award for her cultural diversity work in schools from Coventry University, has successfully helped organisations (such as Birmingham Hippodrome and the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance) to improve their cultural diversity and has led hundreds of workshops and training sessions for children and professionals, UK wide.
