Diversity Training: Celebrating Diversity in the Workplace
In this modern age, workplace success relies on celebrating the individuality of each employee. Leaders must unite diverse individuals in pursuit for a shared vision and mutual goals. Doing so can reap dividends beyond performance and foster meaningful connections from different backgrounds – failure to do so however may result in serious legal consequences for organisations not embracing diversity today.
As organisations embrace diversity and inclusion, smart companies are instituting initiatives to foster a vibrant work culture. Establishing teams dedicated to promoting inclusivity while creating tailored training programs allows employees the opportunity to further understand different perspectives and build an atmosphere of appreciation for everyone’s unique contributions.
How Diversity Training Can Help
In recent history, cultures that foster diversity and inclusivity have proven to be the most successful. The business world values this sentiment as it is often a direct source of profit for companies who can learn from various perspectives. At the same time, there are many challenges associated with integrating diverse backgrounds into teams – something which this training course aims to address head-on by teaching participants how best to overcome such issues and make their team more productive than ever before!
Diverse Learning Objectives:
As we start the training session we develop the definition of diversity and why it is important to a workplace. Our trainer investigates the current knowledge and thoughts on diversity from the participants in the group.
How aware are we of diversity in our workplace? We provide an activity for individuals to see just how aware they are of diversity in the workplace.
Media and stereotyping can affect our thinking over time. This part of the session resets some of the disbelief’s and false information.
We discuss stereotypes and how the mind creates categories naturally, yet how bias that we attribute to the stereotypes can be detrimental. We help participants understand that although it is natural to categorize information, we need to be careful when creating stereotypes.
In today’s world there are times when statements can be taken out of context and terms that we may have used previously yet they have now become politically incorrect to use. We discuss some of these factors and how we can be more aware of the terms we can and cannot use.
In this session we provide information on the four cornerstones of diversity which are knowledge, acceptance, understanding, and behaviour.
There are several pitfalls in relating to diversity we provide information on the areas we need to be more aware of. By becoming more aware of areas of concern, we are then able to make an active goal to work on these pitfalls.
What do we do when we see or hear inappropriate behaviour in the workplace? This session here explains what we must do as an employee. If this is a team session we can inform your team how to follow the workplace procedures in your organisation.
How do we encourage diversity? Our trainer will provide solutions for workplaces so they are able to create a diverse workforce.
