With the world becoming more mobile and diverse, diversity has taken on a new importance in the workplace. Having a diverse workforce and training everyone in an organization to appreciate and embrace diversity can help set a business apart from its competition. The consequences for organizations that lag behind in addressing issues of diversity are high: missed opportunities, customer and client complaints, and service-delivery problems. An effective organization is one which recognizes and maximizes the differences that exist within individuals whether they are age, gender, race or disability. This training program explores the challenges that arise from diversity, issues that surface in diverse workgroups, and methods for handling conflict.
