Diversity and Inclusion

Our graduates will leave Poole College able to foster and facilitate an environment of inclusivity and positive inter-cultural communication and interaction, especially in the context of today’s global business world.

Upcoming Event

Tuesday Takeovers

Starting fall 2019, the Diversity & Inclusion team is working hard to bring companies to Poole to allow students to learn more about the company, their inclusive practices and build their network.

Each Tuesday will showcase a different theme, allowing students to learn more about different identities and how the company uses inclusive practices to support their employees and communities.

This increased exposure to the many aspects of companies will increase student awareness and interest in the opportunities available for internships and full-time placements.
