Workplace Discrimination and Diversity Training

Group of leader and businesspeople in a meeting at office

Duration: Half a day – 1 day


Australia has several workplace regulations and laws that prohibit bullying, discrimination and harassment. The importance of having a team that understands the appropriate ways to interact with each other and deal with conflict to build a strong culture is paramount.

The negative impact of not having a team that commits to respect for each other at all times can be devastating for a business – legally and financially. It can undermine team cohesiveness and employee engagement as well as brand.

In this course, delivered by Glass Rock Solutions, participants will learn what it means for an organisation to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. They will learn to recognise bullying, discrimination and harassment, as well as how these behaviours affect organisations as well as how to model the right behaviours.

Course material can be tailored to individual workplace policies and procedures to ensure that participants can fully engage with information and scenarios relevant to their own workplaces.

Target Audience

The training is available and recommended for anyone in the organisation, and Glass Rock will customise the training specifically for your group.
