Inclusion at Work is designed for a busy workplace, where face-to-face training may not be feasible. This 5-module course provides learners with perspectives that are foundational to an inclusive mindset, and tools to immediately impact their workplace culture in a positive way.
Changes to the OH&S Act (Bill 30) have put increased attention on protecting the health and well-being of all Alberta workers, and inclusive workplaces have been shown to be healthy workplaces.
