Diversity project results to be revealed.

A FREE conference in Llandudno next month is set to reveal the results of a project into how e-Learning can best be used to build diversity awareness in large-scale organisations.

The Engaging Diversity project created an online diversity learning programme trialled by more than 4,000 people in Wales.

The project, part-funded by the European Social Fund's Equal programme, explored how e-Learning technology could be used to reach a large audience quickly and efficiently.

A development partnership comprising of the BTC Group, a Llandudno-based specialist provider of e-Learning and training, as project leaders, local authorities, an NHS trust and NGOs created six e-Learning modules covering race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, the Welsh Language and disability, in both Welsh and English and with a focus on Welsh facts and history. The modules raised awareness of diversity issues.

The results will be revealed at the conference at Venue Cymru on December 4 which will also feature keynote presentations from speakers including Judy Ling Wong, director of the Black Environment Network, Dr John Fazey, Oxford Learning Institute, Oxford University, and AM Mark Isherwood, a member of the equality committee.
