Diversity in the Workplace
2 Hours Dual CLE & 2 Hours General CME
More than ever, any group of people is a diverse collection of individuals proud of who they are: their gender, their sexual orientation, their religion, their ethnic background, and all the other components that make an individual unique. One of the challenges for today's practitioners and professionals is how to help these diverse individuals collaborate. We all know what happens to relationships that don’t have effective collaboration: they fail. This course will give you ways to celebrate diversity in your life while bringing individuals together, both personally and professionally.
At the end of this course, you'll be able to:
- Describe what diversity and its related terms mean
- Explain how changes in the world have affected you and your view
- Identify your stereotypes
- Use terms that are politically correct and avoid those which are not
- Apply the four cornerstones of diversity
- Avoid the pitfalls related to diversity
- Use a technique for dealing with inappropriate behavior
- Develop a management style to encourage diversity
- Take action if you or one of your employees feels discriminated against
