Creating an inclusive environment

Play your part in making the University a positive and inclusive place to work and study by completing the online training module.

Equality and Inclusion training module June 2018

Launched earlier this year, An Introduction to Equality & Diversity is an introductory module covering the key principles of equality, diversity and inclusion. Access the training by logging in to Minerva, clicking on 'Teach' and selecting 'Organisations' on the left of the screen. 

It covers the type of behaviours that are expected of all members of our University community, information about equality law, and ways in which we support and promote equality and inclusion at Leeds. Jointly produced by the Equality Policy Unit, Organisational Development & Professional Learning (OD&PL) and the Digital Education Service, the module incorporates input and feedback from a wide range of colleagues across our University.

The module aims to enhance levels of individual and institutional confidence and our ability to deal with equality-related challenges and opportunities. It also explains the potential impact of unconscious bias and how we can recognise and mitigate against it to help achieve the fairness and increased diversity we want to achieve at Leeds.

The learning is in a clear, easy to follow format, and includes a range of different activities to test people’s understanding and knowledge. It can be completed in around 30 minutes. The module is required training for all staff so it’s really important that colleagues take time to complete it.
