Understanding Diversity

Our increasingly diverse society is reflected in our growing workforce. Leading organizations acknowledge that working successfully with others who do not share the same background, beliefs or traditions is a top priority in the workplace. Many times employees need assistance in analyzing their behavior toward people who are different from themselves. They will learn to understand the benefits of changing negative attitudes, by transforming resistance into appreciation and cooperation. This training assists participants in discovering their personal comfort level with people different than themselves, understand the impact of their behavior on others, assess the accuracy of their knowledge about differences, limit the influence of stereotypes, reduce conflict, transform knowledge into acceptance and empathy, and embrace diversity as a source of organizational strength.
