Course Description

The best leaders and organizations aren’t just diverse—they are intentionally free of bias. Now more than ever, there is external and internal pressure for business leaders to create workplace cultures that are sensitive, responsive, and welcoming. During this 2-hour ethics program, you will learn how to create a bias-free workspace. The business community is changing as national events generate awareness about how racial and cultural bias quietly impact our workplace. Adept business leaders develop and execute diversity and inclusion strategies that drive higher value out of their companies and employee engagement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize implicit biases within an organization

  • Identify emotional intelligence tools to manage a diverse employee base effectively

  • Identify a strategy to develop a diversity driven mission

  • Identify resources to discover how to become an expert-level corporate ally that champions professional equity

  • Recall the term "micro-aggression" and learn how to uncover hidden micro-aggressions in the workplace
