Diversity and Inclusion resources on Lynda.com
By Caroline E Norris, on 4 June 2018
All new UCL staff are required to do an online Diversity course and there are also a variety of other courses provided via the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion site including an online course for students. This topic has also recently been brought to the forefront by a project looking at attainment of BME students and there is a new checklist to enable staff to assess the inclusivity of their programmes. If you are interested in exploring further there are a number of tutorials available on Lynda.com that might be of interest. One of the courses looks at diversity in teams while another introduces the concept of ‘belonging’ alongside diversity and inclusion. There is a course looking specifically at unconscious bias and some courses which look at working across different cultures. We’ve put these together into a Diversity and Inclusion playlist for you to browse. This content is made in the USA so any statements about legislation will not necessarily be true for the UK but there is nonetheless some interesting food for thought here to deepen your understanding in this area.
