Working With Diversity (1-Day Seminar)
We have never been in a more “global economy” or a more complex demographic workforce. We have people from every culture imaginable along with three different generations working in the same company. How do you engage them all? How do you manage or supervise such a diverse group of people and form them into an efficient team? How do you minimize misunderstandings and prejudice?
This interactive course shows employees how to embrace other cultures and differences, learn from them and communicate better to ensure understanding, which leads to productivity. Here is what this course discusses:
- Why we should be concerned
- Perceptions we have
- What the law says
- Our responsibilities
Labeling people and cultures
- Yes, you are prejudiced
- Division by categories
- Where it comes from
- Why we do it
- Learning about “Them”
- Exemplifying concern
- Making a difference
- Dealing with someone “different”
- Who doesn’t understand whom?
- 5,000 years can get in the way
- How we get to a “win/win” solution
- Dealing with Harassment
- Setting the example
- Constant concern for the person
- Being proactive
This is a great session for companies looking to discuss and uncover the gift of diversity. It’s a wonderful way to bring people together and have an open and candid discussion about how we consider people from different races, ages, who have disabilities, or sexual orientations different than our own. It’s an enjoyable course for all who attend and nobody leaves the same as when they came into the room.
