Understanding what difference, diversity and inclusion really mean and building awareness and skills to work and communicate more effectively across difference in future
Course Objectives and Description:
“Diversity” has become something of a dirty word in the USA due to tokenism, quotas and some dubious training practices. This practical, interactive workshop will help both willing and skeptical participants understand what Diversity, Inclusion and Culture are all about and why they are so important in the non-profit environment, for their organization, for their internal and external counterparts and for themselves. They will then learn why and how people work and communicate in different ways and begin practicing how to relate to others more effectively in future.
- Learn what it means to be diverse, inclusive and culturally competent in the non-profit environment and why it is important for our community, our organizations and us as individuals
- Understand how their and others’ personal values, behaviors and communication styles are determined by a mixture of different cultural factors
- Begin practicing how to work and communicate with people from other cultures more effectively in future
