Employee engagement depends upon the organization’s ability to foster a culture of inclusion. Creating an inclusive environment allows us to take advantage of different points of view, leverage the power of difference, and sustain a workplace where everyone can contribute to his or her fullest potential.
This workshop helps employees understand what diversity and inclusion are and why they are critical to accomplishing the mission. Participants will be introduced to concepts that allow them to explore their own unique differences, as well as unconscious biases and how they show up in workplace behaviors. They will develop a working definition of diversity and how it applies to the organization, examine the language of diversity, and suggest ways to be more inclusive in communication.
