Whitton Harrow Ltd. (WHL): is a small consultancy organisation offering diversity and inclusion training, leadership coaching, courses and consultancy on organisational strategy, learning resource development and project management.
We have facilitated many training programmes, events and workshops covering topics such as: “Challenging institutionalised discrimination and valuing diversity”. “Improving cross-cultural communication”; and “Gender equality and culture”.
Projects have included:
· The design and facilitation of 80 workshops across a variety of private and public sector services in Hertfordshire, entitled: "How to welcome disabled children and young people into your setting". Activities explored barriers to inclusion, language and etiquette and tools and tips about increasing the inclusion of disabled people. Participant feedback was overwhelmingly positive, emphasising how practically useful the workshop had been.
· The design and delivery of a one-day course across the UK for the Food Standards Agency: “Working effectively with minority ethnic food businesses”. The course develops participants’ awareness of cultural and ethnic diversity in the UK, the legislative framework, cross-cultural relationship-building and strategies to develop good practice.
· We have created a variety of learning resources for teachers, youth workers and peer educators (commissioned by organisations such as Amnesty International UK and the Department for International Development)).
