Types of Discrimination (DI006)

When a person is singled out or treated unfairly because of certain characteristics, that’s discrimination. But did you know there are also different types of discrimination an individual might experience, such as workplace policies that apply to all employees but actually place some people at an unfair disadvantage?

It’s really important to understand the different ways that people can experience discrimination, so we can defend ourselves and each other while making sure we don’t treat anyone in a way that is discriminatory and wrong.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Define discrimination
• Identify the main types of discrimination
• Analyze the different ways people can be discriminated against

Why take this course?

Our differences should be celebrated. We all have a role to play in making the world a safer and fairer place for everyone. Whatever your position in an organization, it’s essential to understand how to define different types of discrimination in case you experience or witness them. It will also empower you to make sure you don’t contribute to a culture of discrimination through your own actions, both in and outside the workplace. This course will bring you up to speed.
