Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in the Workplace
Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) are at the forefront of the world’s social agenda.

Additionally, it enhances the learner’s ability to speak the language of diversity. Through interactive exercises and real-world scenarios, learners embark on a journey of enlightenment, self-discovery, and self-reflection.
