Course Description

Diversity in the workplace is essential to creating a thriving business, especially when it comes to employee engagement. Workplace diversity encourages creativity and innovation because every team member, from leadership to frontline employees and mobile workers, brings their unique backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to the table.

Every company is required by law to be an equal opportunity employer, but many companies continue to struggle in obtaining true diversity in their organizations. Why?

This online CPE course defines what true diversity in the workforce looks like, its benefits, and the key strategies that must be in place to truly become a diverse organization.

There’s a lot of talk about diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Companies try to get rid of any form of discrimination in their hiring process. Some of them are actively looking to attract diverse candidates, e.g. by applying blind resume screening methods or by hosting female-only career days. But what happens when the final hiring decision is distorted by unconscious bias? Could you be biased without even realizing it?

In the hiring process, unconscious bias happens when you form an opinion about candidates based solely on first impressions. Or, when you prefer one candidate over another simply because the first one seems like someone you’d easily hang out with outside of work.

Join this CPE/CPD webinar to discuss how subconscious bias plays a role in the hiring process and ways to overcome it.
