Description:

Today's Workplace is a Kaleidoscope of Diversity.

Today's workplace requires that all employees work with increased sensitivity to our cultural awareness and diversity consciousness.  The demographics of today's workplace are more diverse, and thus more different than at any time in our nation's history.  Interestingly enough, the increased number of differences strengthens our similarities.  Today's diversity far exceeds what we have simply seen as just the customary differences in gender, age, and race.  This 3-hour interactive workshop will include a series of exercises and facilitated discussions designed to increase the awareness of the workshop attendees about diversity and the value of working in a blended workplace.  Workshop attendees will: 

  • Learn more about digital diversity, generational differences, and intellectual vs. trades diversity

  • Dispel myths about diversity while increasing one’s cultural consciousness

  • Learn more about just how diverse we are and our cultural landscape

  • Discover the demographic make-up or our region, state, and nation

  • Learn how technology and business globalization are leading the shift in diversity throughout the world

  • Explore the importance of communicating about diversity, our differences, and our similarities in the workplace with confidence

  • Learn about the costs of inadequate diversity consciousness
