The Challenge:

In our current VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex & Ambiguous) world, we are constantly reminded of the need for respectful discourse, communication and behavior toward people who come from diverse backgrounds or carry diverse perspectives. This course is built on the premise that everyone brings a unique set of qualities, ways of thinking and behavior to the way they work, and that this diversity can be a pillar for innovation and business success.

Program Outcomes:

Building Respect in the Workplace is a course that is designed for organizations that understand and value the meaning of creating a respectful and inclusive environment for all employees. While this is not a full unconscious bias training, we do look at how our biases can sometimes impact how we treat others with diverse backgrounds.
