A Learning and Development Manual by Neil Thompson
Issues of equality and diversity are complex, difficult and sensitive. Some people believe they have already learned everything. This training manual is designed to help people to build on the strengths and avoid the pitfalls of the past. It dispels some of the myths and oversimplifcations around issues like ’political correctness’, and shows how dangerous it is to oversimplify and distort some very complicated issues.
Writing in the foreword to this manual, Neil Thompson says: ’Promoting equality and valuing diversity is not an easy task – in fact, it is a major challenge. However, it is well worth the time, effort and energy invested in it.’
This manual provides a background knowledge base underpinning the work and a series of 22 exercises on: race and ethnicity; gender; age; disability; sexual orientation; and religion. It also contains a guide to further study. It is an excellent resource that will be of immense value to training and development professionals; managers interested in promoting understanding in their teams or staff groups; practice teachers and mentors; and lecturers and tutors in colleges and universities.
