Aligning Diversity Strategies and Practices with Organizational Goals
This workshop explores the many dimensions of leadership and how different cultural groups respond to managers and leaders within an organization.
BENEFITS OF ATTENDING
The management of diversity and inclusion has evolved from “counting the numbers” to “making the numbers count.” Organizations that no longer look at inclusion as having a good mix of diverse people, but as a way to fully engage employees, partners and customers have an opportunity to compete globally. Diversity and inclusion must be embedded in an organizational culture to make a positive impact on performance.
This course differentiates diversity from inclusion and how organizations often miss the real opportunity. Students assess three levels of inclusion and identify evidence that can be used for each level to assess presence and effectiveness. HR executives and leaders share their perspective on diversity and inclusion and how they made the shift to inclusion at organizational, managerial and work group levels.
- Understand better the personal, social, and cultural identities and how they relate to employees of similar and different social locations.
- How to consciously recognize and attempt to reconcile dilemmas arising from potential conflicts between social work professional ethics and particular cultural values, beliefs, and practices.
- Understand and articulate concepts of culture, identity, privilege, ally behaviors, social justice, and “differentness” and integrate these concepts into their practice framework. Understand how these concepts operate in a global context and relate to human rights.
- Gain skills in having honest conversations about the intersection of work practice and race, class, gender, ability.
- Apply knowledge of culturally based value systems and ideologies that influence behavior when planning and implementing policy, service delivery systems, programs, or intervention strategies.
- Utilize skills to combat social injustice, which is necessary for competent practice in diverse communities, including self-reflection, self-assessment, and consultation, and use these skills to understand and build ally relationships.
