In the UK, ‘equality’ is about promoting and fostering everybody’s right to be different, about being free from discrimination, valued as an individual, and having choice and dignity with a right to your own beliefs and values. ‘Diversity’ is a word that means ‘varied and different’. Diversity, therefore, is about more than equality. It’s about creating a culture which values individual differences and variety for the benefit of society, individuals and organisations. We at SEE Change Happen are passionate about celebrating and embracing a diverse society with a focus around LGBT+, and specifically Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming individuals and their environments.
Having a diverse workforce means that the organisation can offer a wide range of ideas, skills, resources and energies to the business to give it a competitive edge. There is a much wider pool of talent available to the organisations which embrace diversity, and they will reap the benefits of a broader market, improved productivity and a raised profile within the community.
Our training programs enable organisations to reduce business risk and support a positive working environment.

Learn how to foster belonging in the Workplace and share your experiences with others. Diversity and Inclusion is a hot topic for employers, however a sense of 'belonging’ has a stronger correlation with employee engagement than diversity or inclusion alone.
