Workplace diversity can be a significant organizational strength, but it can also pose challenges. Programs on valuing diversity and inclusive leadership help employers, managers and executives understand the impact of diversity in the workplace and learn the skills necessary to create a workplace that includes all individual contributions. As a result, the organization can use cultural differences and similarities to maximize performance. Programs include:
This program provides managers worldwide with awareness, knowledge and skill readiness to enable individuals and groups to contribute to their fullest potential by leveraging their unique experiences, perspectives and viewpoints for the collective benefit of all stakeholders. Through case studies, exercises, discussions, video scenarios and personal feedback, managers explore critical issues related to specific workforce diversity concerns both from a global and local perspective. Your organization’s priorities, expectations and policies concerning diversity and inclusion are explained and applied to specific cases and examples. Through targeted skill building exercises, participants practice to enhance inclusiveness and performance personally and in their sphere of influence. More than raising awareness, this learning solution provides managers with specific skills to (1) address diversity related concerns consistent with the organization’s philosophy and policy, and (2) foster an inclusive climate that improves organizational performance, such as speed, efficiency, creativity, innovation, motivation and corporate image. This learning solution is a key element to changing organizational culture and climate, and fosters integration and synergy of the organization.
Valuing Diversity, Practicing Inclusion
This program is specifically designed for employees and managers who need to understand the effects and challenges of marketplace and workforce diversity on the organization, its teams, and ultimately, their individual role and responsibility. This workshop explores the various diversity challenges that are affecting the business and links them to the organization’s existing Diversity & Inclusion initiative. Participants explore the positive and potentially negative impacts of diversity in their workplace, explore specific changes in mindset and behaviors required to leverage differences, and identify barriers to true inclusion. Common diversity issues and scenarios are explored and participants identify specific mindsets, behaviors and skills to bring about an inclusive climate. More precisely, participants explore the insider/outsider dynamics that accompany most diversity challenges, and obtain tools and skills to (a) manage diversity related conflicts, and (b) implement inclusive work and management behaviors.
