Diversity, Equity & Inclusion – A Closer Look

Diversity has been a business buzzword for many years, but its definition is very different today than it was initially. It is much more than a Black, White, Hispanic, male, or female issue and while it continues to include those areas, it also extends to economic status, age, gender identity and much more. Since that time, we have evolved to more of a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) focus because it’s important for organizations to be more diverse, encourage greater equity (gender equity, pay equity, eliminating barriers) and become a more inclusive environment for all employees. 

In an ever-changing and mobile workforce, we can no longer expect our employees and co-workers to have identical values, beliefs, cultural backgrounds, and organizational expectations. In fact, a company's growth often depends on recognizing how to use the strengths of everyone within the organization and understanding how differences in the workplace can provide a competitive advantage. Those companies that are most successful in creating a DE&I culture within their workplace will produce the best results and retain satisfied and engaged employees.

This enlightening, interactive 2-hour LIVE ONLINE course will provide you with heightened self-awareness while helping you to understand the components of DE&I. It provides tools and strategies for creating an inclusive DE&I culture at your workplace. Through self-assessment, lively discussions, small-group breakout exercises and interactive technology, this course will provide the skills and knowledge necessary to understand, appreciate and leverage a DE&I workforce to create the competitive advantage for organizational success.
