Frequently criticised as box-ticking or virtue signalling by big business, diversity training has become a major talking point once again. Not least because of the resurgence of black lives matter last year, and the UK Government's recent - much criticised - report on race.
So does diveristy training make a difference? And what do organisations need to do to drive change?
On this week's episode of The Good Practice Podcast, Ross G and Owen are joined by D&I specialist Dana James-Edwards. We discuss:

In 'What I Learned This Week', Owen mentioned the app Fitbod: fitbod.me. It doesn't come across well in an audio format, but Mr F is looking great - and more of the hosting team should have noticed.
Dana shared that last week was the beginning of the Sikh New Year.
