The world looks different than it has in the past. The changes demand new ways of interaction and communication. The 4-Part Series in The Diversity Series focuses on the legal, ethical and practical issues companies and workers face in this dynamic new environment, demonstrating how we can use our diversity to enhance our organization's competence and performance.
Program 1, On the Threshold of Change (17 minutes)
The series begins with an overview module. We explore the definition of diversity and how it can impact our work lives. We examine the changing workforce and the issues these changes raise as a process - not a problem. Conflict is viewed as an element in this process and we consider the communication skills we need to productively navigate these changes.
Program 2, Gender and Sexual Orientation Workplace Issues (20 minutes)
The Diversity Series continues in the second module by dispelling many of the popular stereotypes about men and women, gays and lesbians. We discuss what is acceptable workplace behavior and the fears and concerns that challenge mutual respect and lead to conflict.
Program 3, Race, Ethnicity, Language and Religion Workplace Issues (20 minutes)
The third module takes on the stereotypes that have divided people for centuries. A distinguished collection of managers, line workers and consultants share their experiences and insights.
Program 4, Age and Physical Ability Workplace Issues (18 minutes)
Finally, The Diversity Series concludes by invesitgating the inherent mythology that surrounds people who are young, old or differently abled. We evaluate our fears and look at how we can integrate all qualified employees regardless of age or physical ability.
