Diversity At Work

The Diversity at Work Series™ is a curriculum designed to help leaders and organizations leverage the power of diversity in their workforce.

A number of organizations espouse that they value diversity, often including verbiage related to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in their print/media.

But my experience reveals that often they do not know how, often taking a one size fits all approach.  

But since diversity is multifaceted, inclusion strategies must be too.  That is why I created the Diversity At Work Curriculum.  This series tackles issues of diversity from differing vantage points and includes the following:

  1. Finding Common Ground
  2. Leading A Diverse Workforce
  3. Working Well Together
  4. Erasing Isms
  5. Building BEST Teams
  6. The Generations 

Diversity At Work

Finding Common Ground

Some organization embark upon a diversity initiative because of a certain event or because they are passionate about making the difference.  But they do not formulate a plan.

For any initiative to be successful there must be buy-in and commitment from leaders and influencers within the organization.  And that does not happen by accident.

Finding Common Ground™ explores the business case for diversity, fosters understanding and clarifies why effectively managing diversity in the workplace will help the organization achieve its mission. 

Without buy-in on "The Why" for DEI, it will die on the vine.  Literally.



Leading A Diverse Workforce

Buy-in from leadership is a key ingredient to organizational success.  I often say that leadership starts in the head.  Therefore, starting at the head, with leadership, is critical to success.   

Leading A Diverse Workforce™ is designed for leaders, both formal and  informal, to assess and build skills for leading and managing a diverse workforce.

This module will arm leaders with practical strategies for increasing engagement and productivity.

"Rigid ideas and prejudices limit thinking."

Erasing Isms

We come into the workplace with preconceived notions about people, their ability to perform, and ideas about where they belong. Sometimes we are not even aware of these assumptions.

Unfortunately, bias, both conscious and unconscious, wreaks havoc in our world and in the places where we work.  They show up as Racism, Sexism, Ageism, Ableism, Classism, etc.  I call them ISMs.  To be corrected, ISMS, regardless of what type it is, must be traced to their root cause.  

Yes, laws exist to prevent and help protect against conscious bias. But what about unconscious bias.  That's where this eLearning comes in.

Erasing Isms™ introduces a three (3) step process for uprooting and dismantling the effects of implicit bias.

Building BEST Teams

Highly productive teams must be built.  They do not happen by accident.  Its intentional.  

According to my research, failure to build a team is one of the top career stallers. If not corrected, it will not only stall a leader's career, it will stop it in its tracks.

Building BEST Teams™ is designed to help a group of individuals understand the stages of group development, assess their current stage and develop an action plan to move the group from forming to performing. 

Armed with a team and individual action plans, each group member can take 100% responsibility for their part in helping the group become a high performing team.

The Generations

From a generational perspective, the workforce is more diverse than ever. This fact makes for a highly dynamic environment potentially laced with interpersonal collisions and unhealthy conflict.

The Generations™ is designed to explore attributes of each generation, not for the purpose of labeling, but for the purpose of understanding how the generations can “blend” to achieve organizational success.

Want To Know More?
