Businesses who successfully lead and serve a diverse clientele generate customer loyalty, create a more productive and satisfying work environment for their employees, and significantly increase their bottom line. This session presents a positive, pro-active approach to help businesses and organizations create a culture that is safe and welcoming for all people.
Participants will explore their own individual diversity profile and more fully understand their own fear and bias. We learn how to honor our differences, appreciate our uniqueness and recognize our commonality. As a result, we begin to embrace and enjoy the diverse world we live in.
In addition, we will develop a simple and effective method for dealing with and eliminating discrimination and harassment in the workplace. This positively affects workplace harmony and employee morale and reduces the threat of legal consequences. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
As businesses and organizations lead and serve in our diverse global economy, they reap both social and fiscal rewards.
