Diversity and Inclusion: 21st Century Higher Education
This half-day course will identify some of the common and distinctive issues that impact diversity and inclusion experiences in colleges and universities.
Diversity in the Workplace for Staff
Diversity in the Workplace helps the participants learn to appreciate their own group cultures and respect and interact with individuals from other groups. Participants will learn communication essentials that will facilitate agreement on issues of mutual concern.
Participants will also learn how diversity can fuel conflict and how to apply strategies that promote empathy and bring resolution.
Diversity in the Workplace for Supervisors and Managers
Skills such as effective communication, treating each employee uniquely, promoting the collaboration of diverse small groups within the larger group, and being open-minded, are essential to managing diversity. This course will address the ‘what and how’ of implementing Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace along with guidelines for accountability.
Unconscious Bias Training
Unconscious or implicit bias refers to the associations that are made between different qualities and social categories such as race, gender or disability and are judgments that are made without conscious awareness. Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about various social and identity groups, and these biases stem from one’s tendency to organize social worlds by categorizing.
This course is one piece of a larger framework that will address cultural competency needs related to many different groups. The education is designed to provide all staff members with both fundamental cultural competency knowledge about the transgender population and specific language to incorporate into practice to demonstrate respect and inclusion.
More than ever before, organizations are evolving, innovating and changing in order to stay alive and competitive. And they’re depending on their leaders to accept, support and successfully manage all stages of the change process. This course will define change and develop positive and creative leaders who will motivate their teams through change and the opportunities that come with it.
