What’s the course about?

Gender and Sexual Orientation Awareness

Create and inclusive workplace where everyone can thrive

According to the Equality Act 2010, it is unlawful to harass, discriminate against, or unfairly treat individuals in the workplace because of their sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, or other protected characteristics. However, despite legal protections, many employees still don’t feel fully safe, accepted, valued, or empowered to be their authentic selves at work.

Improving understanding of gender and sexual orientation terminology and issues can mitigate prejudices and misunderstandings, fostering more diverse and inclusive work environments.

This course aims to enhance learners’ understanding of gender and sexuality terminology and issues. It addresses key areas including, gender identity, sexual orientation diversity, the Equality Act 2010, employer and employee roles, and action planning to promote diversity and equality.
