What key areas should Diversity courses cover?


Empowering your Workforce

Is there cause for Celebrating Diversity in the Workplace?

When looking for a course that covers some of the  Grey shaded areas, what is it that we should strive to help participants explore and learn?

article by Diane Shawe M.Ed AVPT

I would like to present  the  10 pointers that I believe need clarification in a Diversity training course.

  1. What diversity and its related terms mean
  2. To be aware of how aware they are of diversity and where they can improve
  3. Understand how changes in the world can affect them and their view
  4. To identify their stereotypes
  5. What terms are politically correct and which are not, and why
  6. The four cornerstones of diversity
  7. What the pitfalls are relating to diversity and how to avoid them
  8. A technique for dealing with inappropriate behavior
  9. A management style to encourage diversity
  10. What to do if they or one of their employees feels discriminated against

Defining Diversity

Participants will begin by defining diversity and related terms, including affirmative action, bias, stereotype, and Equal Employment Opportunity.

How Does Diversity Affect Me?

Help participants identify how a changing world has affected them. Participants will also complete a self-awareness inventory to identify possible areas for improvement.

Identifying Stereotypes

Identifying Stereotypes

Identifying Stereotypes

Help participants to explore stereotypes from different angles through a lecture and group exercises.

Wise Words

In this era of political correctness, it’s sometimes hard to keep up with words that have become inappropriate. It is important to take a look at some phrases that are considered universally incorrect and some basic guidelines. It is also important to take a humorous look at some phrases that have gone too far.

The Cornerstones of Diversity

Diversity experts Armida Russell, Amy Tolbert, and Frank Wilderman have identified four cornerstones of diversity development. They are knowledge, acceptance, understanding, and behavior. These need to be examined in more detail.

How to Discourage Diversity

There are some practices that discourage diversity more than they encourage it. We need to  look at four common mistakes and how to avoid them.

The STOP Technique

Diversity expert Lenora Billings-Harris has developed a four-step technique that you can use when someone is behaving in an inappropriate manner. It’s called STOP. Participants will learn about this technique.

Managing for Diversity

We need to look at some simple things managers and employees can do to encourage diversity in their workplace.

Dealing with Discrimination

Gather ideas on how to deal with discrimination as a manager and an employee.

1 day course: Diversity in the workplace

In the past ten years, the workforce has changed dramatically. More than ever, a workplace 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. In order for your workplace to succeed, your employees must be able to appreciate and celebrate those differences.  Click here to read more about our online or workshop course
