Explore the many benefits of working with people who have different talents, experiences and backgrounds.

- Better recognise the benefits of a diverse workforce
- Adopt practices that support and integrate diversity in the workplace
- Monitor, review and evaluate your own behaviour in relation to diversity
- Identify the legislative and other requirements for managers in relation to workforce diversity
