Leading Diversity and Inclusion

Colleagues working together in a conference room

Duration Half a day – 1 day

Overview

We are all unique individuals with different knowledge and perspectives that have been influenced by our age, gender, experiences, lifestyles, social influences, cultures and individual perspectives.

Over the past several years, organisations have come to understand how this diversity is a strength.

The basic concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect and understanding differences whether they are ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, education, social status or religion.

For diversity to become an organisational strength, then there must be: inclusion, tolerance, and awareness that we each are different and need different things to reach our full potential. However, it is equally important to understand how to unlock the difference to find common ground to build a shared reality.

This is a powerful workshop to understand biases and to understand how we respond and react from bias as opposed to a position which is conducive to collaboration.

This course, delivered by Glass Rock Solutions, addresses diversity and its benefits; discrimination in the workplace; the impact of bullying and harassment on victims; and the leader’s role in setting/maintaining standards and dealing with inappropriate behaviour. It also teaches leaders and managers to counter the effects of ‘biases’ in teams and to encourage a workplace ethos that embraces and celebrates diversity.

Target Audience

This course, delivered by Glass Rock Solutions, is designed for anyone within an organisation but in particular, team leaders, managers and senior managers – who are directly engaged in developing and leading diverse, multicultural teams – for improved business performance and results. Also highly beneficial to multi-vendor client environments.
