With the world becoming more mobile and diverse, diversity has taken on a new importance in the workplace. Your participants will be able to use strategies for removing barriers and stereotypes, and to encourage diversity in the workplace and even through their community.
The Workplace Diversity course will help participants understand what diversity is all about, and how they can help create a more diverse world at work and at home. They will be instructed to use skills such as active listening to receive messages in a diverse population, employ effective questioning techniques, and communicate with strength.
Diversity relates to gender, age, linguistic and cultural background, disability, religious belief and pregnancy and family responsibilities. Diversity also refers to the many other ways we are different in other respects such as educational background, socio-economic background, personality profile, geographic location, marital status, etc.
