Queen's has launched a new Diversity e-Learning resource for staff, called 'Think Difference, Act Differently'.
"The ongoing professional development of all Queen's staff is paramount, so this new, bespoke, modern e-learning diversity programme reflects that organisational commitment.
"This short, interactive e-learning resource is fully accessible across platforms and operating systems, but it is only one element of a blended approach to enhancing staffs' knowledge of workplace equality, diversity and inclusion.
"Staff will continue to have access to face to face learning opportunities, through workshops delivered both by my Unit and external subject matter experts such as Stonewall to help them gain a deeper understanding of workplace rights and responsibilities."
"With an industry-leading approach to training a diverse staff body from many different backgrounds, Queen's University Belfast is breaking new ground to develop a unique resource that gets right to the heart of equality, where everyone is treated equally, and diversity respected."
She added: "It was important from the outset of this project to create a unique learning resource that reflected modern practice. Our educational team worked closely a range of the university's diversity and equality experts to create content that is lifelike, visually engaging and focuses on storytelling to bring equality, diversity and inclusion issues to life."
"The Equality Commission welcomes Queen's University's new e-Learning resource as it will help to promote equality of opportunity by highlighting that their employees have a right to work in a good and harmonious work environment that is free from all forms of harassment and to complain about such behaviour should it occur.
"This training will help ensure that staff understand the Universities policies and procedures and their position in law while promoting a work environment in which employees are treated with dignity and respect."
Queen's University Belfast is committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
