Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace - Essential Concepts
Available from Compliance Training Group
Our Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace courses are appropriate for all employees. The Essential Concepts version offers foundational skills to support an employer’s D&I program. Participants will become more adept at navigating cultural and other differences between individuals in the workplace. By improving the quality of personal interactions among people with diverse identities, conflict will be reduced, making the workplace more efficient. This 60-minute course improves recognition of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination, while suggesting strategies to halt those practices in favor of an equitable and inclusive environment for coworkers, clients, and the public.
During this eLearning experience, we’ll discuss how inclusive practices are an essential compliment to diversity in the workplace, and define many exclusive behaviors that can serve as a barrier, including harboring an implicit bias, perpetuating stereotypes, discrimination, and microaggressions. We’ll also recommend useful conversational techniques to address biased statements made in the workplace. Learners are given the opportunity to practice those techniques by using a “conversation simulator” to discourage stereotypical assumptions during conversations with coworkers.
