The British drama communications company ImpAct provides theater presentation workshops to organizations throughout Great Britain to train employees in how to deal with diversity and equality in the workplace. Actors from ImpAct act out everyday workplace scenarios demonstrating acts of racism, sexism, ageism, bullying and other inequalities. Delegates are encouraged to explore their own thoughts, feelings and reactions to the principles of equal opportunities and diversity. The ImpAct services have been used by the British Learning and Skills Council branches in Shropshire, Berkshire, Durham, Suffolk and Tyne in England.
