CMI Level 5 - Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Programme

Equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) have moved from being marginal business concerns into being firmly positioned in the mainstream. Whether viewed from the perspective of brand and reputation, customer reach, or products and services, successful business are learning to tap into EDI as a source of genuine and lasting competitive advantage. 

There has been an understandable growth in the deployment of EDI specialists in organisations, and they will continue to play a vital role in strategy development and implementation. Organisations are realising that greater visibility and clout of the EDI function is only part of the solution. If the benefits in terms of workforce, workplace, and marketplace are to be realised, EDI needs to be positioned as a core competence for managers and leaders throughout the organisation. 

Our CMI Level 5 - Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Programme provides a vital space for leaders and managers at all levels to boost their understanding and effectiveness in the EDI arena. The programme is designed to accommodate practitioners at all levels, and positions EDI as central (rather than additional) to effective management practice. All our delegates will benefit from the highly collaborative and participative delivery style, and all delegates will leave with enhanced clarity about the personal role they play in harnessing the benefits of EDI for their organisation.
