Description

The demographic makeup of our United States society has changed dramatically over the last 25 years, and is continuing to do so.

  • Living and working in our society will require each of us to become increasingly aware of the challenges involved in this cultural change.
  • The changes our society is experiencing go beyond the diversities of race and gender.

Within each culture lies a multitude of diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

These diversities, or dimensions, are multifaceted and are a direct result of an individual’s experiences associated with many factors to include: generational eras, social contacts, families and friendships, and the work environment.

  • To some, diversity is a buzzword for political correctness
  • To others, it means individual groups or individuals are more important than the whole
  • For if each part or individual does not operate in relation to a greater mission, or to the whole, the system breaks apart and doesn’t work
  • Each is important, but functions as part of a larger, integrated whole to achieve a creative, respectful functionality

Diversity training is a basic component of this quality whole.

  • The purpose of this training is to inform and increase awareness and understanding; leading to the development of skills that will refine positive communication and enhance productivity in the workforce.
  • Diversity is defined as the collective strength of experiences, skills, talents, perspectives and cultures that each person brings to the whole.
All employees should be able to examine their individual cultural diversity and how their identity impacts their relationships with others and use this information to recognize, participate, prevent and/or report diversity related incidents to the appropriate management personnel in order to create an environment of understanding, inclusion and respect towards all employees.
