B-Global is working in collaboration with Nottingham Trent University to deliver the newly developed Diversity & Inclusion Introduction course, part funded by the European Social Fund.

NTU's Diversity and Inclusion Introduction has been developed following discussions with local cultural leaders focusing on the need to support the diversification of the workforce. This course gives you the opportunity to understand diversity, recognise diverse strengths, identify, and challenge discrimination so that difference in the workplace is welcomed. The course also supports you in enhancing your own career opportunities and developing inclusion within your business.
