Introduction

One of the major challenges facing organisations in the 21st century is managing diversity in the workplace. There are a lot of stigma and perceptions around Managing Diversity, managers are in fact, at times, scared to tackle the issue and dont know how to deal with Managing Diversity when it becomes evident. As future managers, HR specialists and employees you have been set the following;

You are expected to design and develop an Awareness Campaign Strategy which can be used to educate, inform and change the perceptions about the role and purpose of Managing Diversity within the workplace.

You are an Equality and Diversity consultant, you have links to Stonewall, Age Concern and EHRC and you have been approached by a number of organisations regarding Managing Diversity in the workplace. For one organisation you have been asked to provide a briefing on what is required within ONE of the following areas, in doing this you will provide advice on the design and implementation of the chosen diversity strategy.

1. Managing gender equality in the workplace
2. Managing sexual orientation and transgender in the workplace
