Diversity in the workplace is a reflection of our changing area and marketplace.
Diversity refers to human qualities that are different from our own and those of groups to which we belong; but that are manifested in other individuals and groups. Dimensions of diversity include but are not limited to: age, ethnicity, gender, physical abilities/qualities, race, sexual orientation, educational background, geographic location, income, marital status, military experience, parental status, religious beliefs, work experience and job classification.
Diversity as a concept focuses on a broader set of qualities than race and gender. In the context of the workplace, valuing diversity means creating a workplace that respects and includes differences, recognizing the unique contributions that individuals with many types of differences can make and creating a work environment that maximizes the potential of all employees.
In this session we will learn a few tools that some organizations have used to understand diversity and ultimately benefit from it. This session is for front line managers, supervisors, HR personnel and others interested in workplace diversity.
