Notes for Editors.

1. The Diversity Means Business project, led by Portsmouth City Council, was funded by the European Social Fund and the South East England Development Agency.  The handbooks and training modules were especially designed to promote equality and diversity in the workplace for business.  There are 13 training modules and an action planning workshop that have been hugely successful and consistently well received by the private sector.  While the three year project has concluded, the material and modules still offer a valuable and current resource for business.
