This course will provide participants with a broad understanding of diversity and inclusion.

Description

The participants will be introduced to guidelines for effectively managing diversity as well as some things to avoid in their organizations.

Corporations will not succeed in the global marketplace unless their leaders radically transform the way they think about differences. Consider the convergence of factors that are about to occur in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 40 percent of people entering the workforce from 1998 to 2008 will be members of minority groups. The number of women in the workforce is increasing at a faster rate than men; in fact, they will make up 48 percent of the workforce by 2010.

Persons with disabilities will make up an increasing portion of the labor force. Young people 16 to 24 represent a group that will grow more rapidly than the overall labor force while workers 55 and older will be working longer. In fact, the median labor force age in 2008 will be 40.7 compared to 38.7 in 1998. To compete in such a radically changing landscape will require more than world-class technology. It will take a major breakthrough in the way we see one another and value our individual contributions. Yet, organizational leaders are struggling to manage diversity and achieve inclusion in their organizations at precisely the time it is needed most.

This course will provide participants with a broad understanding of diversity and inclusion. The participants will be introduced to guidelines for effectively managing diversity as well as some things to avoid in their organizations.
