Diversity in today's workplace is a given... and the value of that diversity allows organizations to draw on a fuller range of experiences - allowing them to think more creatively and avoid biased decision-making. But what if that diversity is causing tension? What if inclusion and equity are slow on the uptake? Treating others with respect is paramount to a successful and inclusive workplace.
Things like bias, crude jokes, disrespectful comments, etc. can all stress an organization not prepared for the very diversity they are seeking (and embracing) in today’s workforce. Topics covered in this new program include: unconscious (hidden) bias, cultural competence, gender inequality, working LGBTQ+ colleagues, immigration, disabled coworkers & customers intersectionality and language barriers - to name a few!
