Diversity and Inclusion Seminar 2019

INFORMATION

One Day Seminar
13 November 2019
Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel, Sandton | Johannesburg

There is no doubt that in this multidimensional and complex society, focusing on maximising the value of a diverse workforce has almost become a business imperative. There are enormous benefits diversity can bring to organisations and research has pointed out that organisations with a diverse leadership perform better financially, are more creative and are better at fostering strong business relationships.

However, while South African organisations extensively focused on hiring for diversity, there’s one part of the equation that we do not often put emphasis on – which is fostering an inclusive culture.

This year’s Diversity and Inclusion conference will thus provide a unique sharing platform to address how to make a real difference at work to create a truly diverse and inclusive culture in the workplace. Join fellow practitioners championing Diversity and Inclusion to make connections, explore best practice and take action in your own organisation.

SETA grants and accreditation requirements
Many of our delegates enquire about the accreditation of our events. There is a misconception that organisations qualify for SETA grants only for accredited programmes. This is not correct. The payment of SETA grants is regulated by the Government Gazette, no. 9867, Vol. 570, 3 December 2012, no. 35940. These Regulations clearly state that the SETAs “must allocate a mandatory grant to a levy paying employer” that has submitted a WSP and ATR by the regulated date, has provided all the information required in the regulated template, and is up to date with skills levy payments. Furthermore, the template in the Regulations (Section C: Skills Development) allows employers to include ALL planned training in the report; not only accredited programmes.
