Description

The training session is about staff of organizations coming together to address diversity, cultural competence and inclusion. It will encourage staff who might see diversity as a barrier to how they treat each other to better understand that such thinking should have no place in the organization and in their dealings with one another, to be open to the possibility of change and acceptance; to value the humanity of co-workers, and their customers and partners. All staff should be committed to creating rooms where they value and respect each other based upon individual contributions to the organization. No one who is employed by any organization should feel less than; or that they are not valued or respected because of their race, sex, religion, national origin, color, age, disability, familial status, sexual orientation or gender identity. This thinking should also apply to the organization's clients and customer base. In a sense, diversity and cultural competence for the employees of an organization should be about good customer service, internally and externally.

The training will be interactive and experiential in that it will give participants an opportunity to engage one another in honest and substantive dialogue around issues of diversity, equity and inclusion. Interactive learning is optimal for adults because it gives them a chance to practice what they are learning as they go.
