About the workshop:


The overall aim of the workshop is to assist representatives / elected employment equity committee members to function effectively in their roles and responsibilities to support the company’s business plan priorities and comply with the requirements of the Employment Equity, Skills Development, and Skills Development Levies Act’s. The programme will also enable the committee members to understand the broader diversity and transformation context that shape and inform EE compliance within the company.


This programme will empower attendees with the skills and knowledge necessary to become proactive in the successful implementation of employment equity in your organisation. The focus of this programme is on the key concepts and issues surrounding the employment equity act, whilst still ensuring that the focus remains on the practical aspects of planning and implementation.

Training methodology:

The session is highly interactive and experiential in nature. A variety of fun and engaging activities, challenges simulations, video clips, and group discussions are used to facilitate introspection and to achieve the workshop objectives. The activities included in the programme are determined by the outcomes and the specific diversity related issues that need to be addressed. The facilitators create a safe environment for participants to explore and work with diversity related issues. As part of the programme the delegates are guided in ways of transferring their newfound knowledge, skills and attitude to the work setting.  As with all TDCI training programmes, we strive to effect actual change back at the workplace through effective and practical outcomes based training.
