Course Description

The workplace is comprised of diverse individuals who are expected to work together toward common goals. However, cultural differences may lead to cultural clashes and challenges. Even so, when individuals learn to embrace the differences of their peers and overcome “blind spot” biases, a more productive and synergetic workplace emerges.

This one-day course is designed to enhance participants’ abilities to work more effectively in culturally diverse situations. Participants will discuss and examine unconscious bias, as well as their own cultural makeup, and explore practical strategies for contributing to a more inclusive and respectful workplace.


Learning Objectives:

  • Define diversity, inclusion, cultural intelligence, and other related terms
  • List the factors that contribute to cultural identity
  • Recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace
  • Identify common barriers that hinder the success of diverse environments
  • Describe how the outsider vs. insider dynamic may be limiting inclusion
  • Explain how unconscious bias works
  • Identify different types of biases
  • Recognize how to disrupt bias thought processes
  • Discover ways to implement a proactive approach to diversity and inclusion through communication, understanding, and relationship building within the workplaces and the communities we serve
  • Identify steps to take if you experience or become aware of discrimination in the workplace
