Diversity in the workplace

Today, we enjoy – or are challenged by – a workplace with multiple cultures and generations working together. Building a diverse team means including people of all genders, countries of origin, race, ethnicity, education level, disability, age, weight, gender identity or other distinguishing traits.  The consequences of disregarding diversity can be costly for organizations as well as the people who work in them. 

In this course, you will become more self-aware of your attitudes toward diversity, explore and address the common workplace situations that can create conflict. You’ll learn strategies to develop positive attitudes toward diversity, foster a more tolerant work environment, and build a cohesive, multicultural and multigenerational team.
