The aim of this qualification is to enable leaders to develop an in-depth understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion at a strategic level. They will also have the opportunity to develop strategic priorities for fulfilling the moral, financial and business case for excellent practice in an organisational context.
There is a moral, financial and business case for excellent practice in equality, diversity and inclusion in an organisational context. Ensuring it is led effectively at a strategic level requires knowledge, understanding, skills, behaviours and tenacity to keep pace with the momentum of change.
