You are required to address all tasks set out below. The website link provided is current as of 27 September 2014 including the information relating to current initiatives.

Whilst EEO legislation covers the general aspects related to Equal Opportunity Employment, the intention of this project is to identify contemporary aspects which would be beneficial for a diverse team in the workplace. You are encouraged to evaluate current programs and identify which aspects can be implemented in a sustainable manner in industry.

The link and information provided on the websites are sources of information and all responses you provide here must be clearly referenced. Policies and procedures must be your own work.

Your trainer will provide you with feedback within agreed timelines as outlined to you.
