25 Diversity and Inclusion Tips

Why is diversity important, and how can we do a better job bringing diversity and inclusion to our lives and the workplace? Businesses must pursue diverse talent and achieve real inclusion if they want to be successful beyond today, and into tomorrow. Beginning with a fundamental understanding of diversity and its many dimensions, participants will achieve greater comprehension of the types and layers of diversity, beyond those as defined by the EEOC. Once the concept of diversity is explored, how do we go on to create real inclusion? How can we create policies and procedures that support our definition of success? What strategies can we employ, and where can we get help if we need it? 

Participants will:

  • Define diversity and its many dimensions.
  • Participants will be able to identify some of the top-level reasons diversity and inclusion are important to the success of businesses today.
  • Identify pitfalls and barriers to diversity and inclusion. Participants will become familiar with biases we all have, how to foster awareness of these unconscious beliefs and counteract them.
  • Participants will be able to identify workplace and recruitment/retention considerations related to differences including religion, age, disabilities, gender issues, sexuality, gender identification, military status and more.
