Course Description

Though study after study show that diverse teams and work environments are the most high-performing, it can be difficult to understand those who are different from us or have different backgrounds. In many cases, diversity can become a bit of an obstacle in a work environment, instead of a powerful asset. How does an organization begin to leverage their diversity and avoid the many pitfalls? This training module will:

  • Give an overview of the importance and effectiveness of diversity in an organization/team
  • Recognize the rich diversity of all people, through various group activities
  • Discuss specific issues of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation to bring awareness of appropriate ways to talk and interact around these issues
  • Learn about the concept of micro-aggressions, their impact, and how to make sure participants are not contributing to them in the workplace
  • Focus on creating a safe, warm environment for all employees
