Diversity and Inclusion: Valuing Differences for Mutual Success
Respect among coworkers provides an important but incomplete foundation for a successful workplace. An organization also must acquire a breadth and wealth of competencies to fulfill its promise. This begins with recruiting and hiring employees with diverse characteristics, backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. It continues by harnessing this diversity by actively involving all employees in efforts to envision, develop, and promote successful solutions. Such efforts at diversity and inclusion ensure that the organization benefits from a broad base of ideas and solutions that best serve customers and address other stakeholder expectations. This course provides an overview of key elements of promoting workplace diversity and inclusion.
