Diversity in the Workplace
2 Hours Dual CLE & 2 Hours Mediation Ethics
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.

- Describe what diversity and its related terms mean

- Avoid the pitfalls related to diversity
- Use a technique for dealing with inappropriate behavior
- Develop a management style to encourage diversity
