What’s this webinar about?
Diversity and inclusion have become hugely important to organizations worldwide, yet many still aren’t confident they understand the issues or know what actions to take to address D&I in their own workplace. This webinar introduces BS ISO 30415:2021 Human resource management. Diversity and inclusion, a new international standard that gives guidance on achieving diversity and inclusion in organizations of all sizes, sectors and types.

It is also valuable to entrepreneurs and small business owners; senior management: directors, CEOs, etc; and organizations without a dedicated HR function.
