Equality and Diversity is very important here at DSU and therefore it is just as important that our staff have a true understanding of what Equality and Diversity is and why it is important that everyone, whether at work or study, is treated fairly. The course that we provide is designed to equip you to better understand what is expected of you as an employee and what you should expect from DSU as your employer.
Diversity recognises that though people have things in common with each other they are also different in many ways. Everyone should have a right to equal access to employment and when employed should have equal pay and equal access to training and development. When working for DSU it is imporant that you have a positive experience and that you are treated by staff and students with dignity and respect. Likewise, we hope that experience is reciprocated.
This course will provide you with case studies and examples to help you identify positive treatment, discrimination, bullying and harassment. It is interactive and is full of activities, video clips and case studies. Once you have completed it, please select and complete the ‘Equality and Diversity Test’. Once you have completed and submitted your test answers, your result will be recorded but don't worry, you can do it again if you are not happy with your score.
