      Diversity Advantage: Handling Micro-Inequities and Bias

      - RECOMMENDED FOR MANAGERS & EMPLOYEES - The landscape of the American workplace has drastically changed within the past 25 years.  The more we embrace a global economy the smaller the world gets. The changes have resulted in a work environment that is rich with diversity not only with respect to race and ethnicity, but also gender, generation and a host of other diversity considerations. However, for each diversity consideration there is the potential for a diversity-related conflict among workers and supervisors, as everyone wants his or her own specific needs to be met. This training identifies the on-going process of recognition, understanding and acceptance of the variety and complexity of people with whom we must interact. It gives participants an opportunity to explore diversity issues from both personal and professional perspectives through lecture, group interaction, open dialogue and short exercises.  This three-hour version has been revised and updated to include more activities to promote participant engagement.
