Course Description

Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is more than a buzz phrase and should not be limited to hiring decisions and racial and gender balance. Diversity is more than just tolerating differences. It is respecting, appreciating, and understanding the character of individuals. Diversity and Inclusion should be woven into the culture of the Organization and recognized as a fundamental value. 

D&I initiatives are vital to eliminating, or at a minimum addressing, implicit biases in the workplace, which affects every level of the employee life cycle from hiring, to promotions to project assignments. This presentation will provide practical steps to addressing implicit bias in the workplace and implementing a sustainable diversity and inclusion strategy.

  • Common misconceptions about Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace. 
  • How to audit your culture for implicit bias and ways to reduce it. 
  • Tips on integrating diversity and inclusion strategies throughout the employee life cycle

We’re looking at developing a D&I program and it covered a few things we haven’t thought of. The presenter was good and content was good. I was hoping to hear more questions from the attendees. I also liked the resources provided. My first webinar with cpe and it was a great experience. Thank you!
