Leveraging diversity and inclusion
- Recognize how difference has impacted each of us in our lives / careers.
- Identify behaviors that create inclusion among a diverse environment in today’s workplace.
- Create personal accountability to embrace Diversity and Gender Differences
This interactive workshop will focus on how to invest in diversity and gender differences to create an environment of trust and success for all employees. Participants will explore the stereotypes, myths, and realities of today’s global, multi-generational workforce. The focus will be to expand awareness across multiple dimensions of what makes each of us unique. In today’s workplace, it is critical to recognize that diversity and inclusion are connected to an organization’s strength and competitiveness. Participants will practice new behaviors that enable them to treat every individual with respect, resulting in increased employee engagement, customer satisfaction/engagement, and leadership accountability.
Attention will also focus on exploring workplace trends, change, and best practices to create an environment of trust, increased productivity, and satisfaction. Participants will be asked to look within themselves on how to appropriately break the stereotypes to educate and influence an environment that welcomes and leverages inclusion. Participants will also create personal accountability for their leadership while embracing new ideas, perspectives, and engaging with today’s global workforce.
