Diversity & Inclusion: 60 Tips in 60 Minutes

Tuesday, March 20th 2:00 p.m. central

Lathrop Gage LLP

2345 Grand Boulevard, suite 2200

Kansas City, MO 64108

Why is diversity important, and how can we do a better job bringing diversity and inclusion to our lives and the workplace? Businesses must pursue diverse talent and achieve real inclusion if they want to be successful beyond today, and into tomorrow. This PowerPoint presentation in a visually pleasing, graphically rich format explores the subjects of diversity and inclusion. Beginning with a fundamental understanding of diversity and its many dimensions, participants will achieve greater comprehension of the types and layers of diversity, beyond those as defined by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Once the concept of diversity is explored, how do we go on to create real inclusion? How can we create policies and procedures that support our definition of success? What strategies can we employ, and where can we get help if we need it?

 

Objectives

  1.      Distinguish the differences between diversity and inclusion and why both are essential for a successful program.
  2.      Identify pitfalls and barriers to diversity and inclusion to be more familiar with common biases, and how to foster awareness of these unconscious beliefs and counteract them.
  3.      Recognize workplace and recruitment/retention considerations related to differences including religion, age, disabilities, gender issues, sexuality, gender identification, and military status.
  4.      Discover strategies to help diverse people succeed in the workplace.
  5.      Apply resources to support your diversity and inclusion efforts.
