1 Making a difference as an individual

Throughout the course, you’ve learned about how individual actions, whether conscious or unconscious, can make a difference to diverse groups.

In Activity 1, you’ll look back at some of the activities you’ve already completed in order to raise your personal awareness and consider where you need to focus on making a change.

Activity 1 Reflecting on your personal learning

Timing: Allow about 20 minutes for this activity.


Self-awareness and self-education play an important role in facilitating our personal diversity and inclusion journeys and the impact we can choose to have in our workplaces.

As has hopefully come across clearly throughout the course, we all have biases and privileges, and we shouldn’t be afraid of admitting that. The key is to acknowledge them, try to understand them and make an effort to stop them from influencing the way we interact with people who are different from us.

An important theme running throughout this course, and something that we can all work on at a personal level, is allyship, and you’ll explore that in more detail next.
