Summary: A wide range of literature now exists to cover most areas in the field of education and training. Until now, however, there has not been any detailed and cohesive study which has sought to consider the different initiatives concerned with equal opportunities and training issues in organizations. Equality in the Workplace is a practical guide which fills that gap. It has been planned to enable readers to put it to a wide variety of uses, depending on their perspective and activities concerning equal opportunities. Equality in the Workplace divides into two parts. The first deals with current training issues such as the organization of equal opportunities training and diagnosing precise training needs in a wide range of organizational contexts. It examines different methods and approaches to equal opportunities training and considers the many ways in which organizations can network and share expertise and experience in the field of equality of opportunity. Part two considers the detail to be included in the content of equal opportunities training programmes. It looks at the problems that a trainer may face and provides suggestions that trainers might consider to enhance the effectiveness of their training programmes. It provides a detailed look at the many tools that a trainer may use to present and improve his or her training. A glossary of terms is provided in appendix form as well as an address list for readers to gain further information on each equality issue. A summary of laws is also provided. Equality in the Workplace is intended to serve human resource managers, trainers, educational institutions and employers, as well as employees and students.
