Safe Harbour eLearning

Why the Safe Harbour diversity and inclusion training? It can be difficult to bring all staff and volunteers together for group in-person training. The eLearning online course is a great way for more people to be able to participate and learn important concepts to support inclusive workplaces. We encourage employers who are purchasing the eLearning course to also create opportunities for follow-up discussion because the richest part of Safe Harbour training is having an opportunity to connect as a team and learn and share diverse perspectives.

The Safe Harbour diversity and inclusion training is also great for individuals looking to begin their journey in diversity and inclusion. The eLearning course offers a self-paced, flexible way to build awareness of diversity, and learn important concepts.
