ALL IN – Tackling Tough Diversity Dynamics

When it comes right down to it, no one likes tension or conflict in the workplace. But with such a diverse workforce, differences are bound to surface.

ALL IN!™ is designed to provide you with practical skills for recognizing and responding to the diversity and inclusion dynamics that are often grounded in racial and cultural differences. It’s important to remember that racism runs counter to our beliefs in human rights. Some people hope that avoiding awareness and discussion of racial issues is the solution. We need to challenge some of our traditional ways of thinking, not by calling people out but by calling people in.

This engaging, interactive course will provide participants with practical skills for recognizing and responding to the diversity and inclusion dynamics that are often grounded in racial and cultural differences.

Everyday Diversity – Recruiting, Hiring, and Retaining Diverse Talent

Are you curious how diversity can help your team be more innovative and impact your culture?

We want to be able to increase and then maximize the benefits of our organizational diversity… helping us become more innovative, productive, and successful. To do that, we’ve got to make an effort to recognize and respond to situations where respect, equity, and inclusion are needed – starting with the recruiting and hiring process – and then in everyday interactions.

This 40-minute, fast-paced course answers common questions and provides real-world tips on finding and keeping diverse talent.
