You may be unaware of the existence or impact of LGBTQ issues and understanding in your organisation. Not only is discrimination in the workplace unacceptable, it can also have negative impacts on your employees and your bottom line. Employees who face race-based discrimination are more likely to report having experienced:

  • A negative impact on both physical and mental health.
  • Decreased motivation.
  • Decrease in productivity.

Employers who do not take an active approach to combating LGBTQ issues within their organisation may experience:

  • Diminished mental health of diverse staff.
  • Loss of sales revenue and customers due to LGBTQ coverage and bad PR.
  • Toxic work culture.
  • High turnover in staff due to a toxic insensitive work culture.
  • Negative impact on recruitment efforts.

Our other Training Services

At Mission Diverse we believe in connecting companies with communities. Unlike some organisations, we are a non-profit company, who use the money you pay us for our training programmes, to reinvest in our Local Community Employability and Enterprise programmes.

Our employability and enterprise programmes provide education, mentoring and personal development training to people from underrepresented and disadvantaged communities. By doing this we hope to provide those from underrepresented communities with the necessary skills and knowledge to enter entrepreneurship and the workplace (…or maybe come and work in your company!).
