Course Description

We have all heard of people being left out at work for reasons which have nothing to do with their skills, but with their gender or religious beliefs. This is usually viewed as an ethical problem, but what if it’s also a business problem?

What if a lack of inclusion is actually bad for your bottomline?

Our world is becoming more complex and diverse every day. Diversity is broadly defined as including persons from different races, ethnicities, religions, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, and physical and mental abilities.

Studies strongly indicate that diverse organizations have a competitive edge in the world. Nonetheless, there are challenges to creating a diverse workforce.

In the short term, organizations may experience more conflict at work. However, organizations become more creative and innovative in finding solutions to problems in the long term.

In this webinar, participants will learn the definitions of diversity and what constitutes a minority. This will be followed by how stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination negatively impact organizations.

Diversity can have a positive effect on increasing productivity, marketing to minorities, and increasing the value of the organization by doing the right thing. Identity also intersects with diversity in dealing with those from different backgrounds.

Webinar attendees will also be exposed to laws that protect individuals from diverse backgrounds that may experience discrimination.

This will include exploring the “glass ceiling” impact on women and other minorities and the evolving legal protections for those that have adopted an alternative lifestyle.

Finally, the webinar will conclude by considering developing a plan for organizational, human resource, and individual responses to diversity and conflict that may come from a diverse work environment.
