Course Detail: HR052 - Webinar: How to Create a Diversity Initiative

Achieving a diverse workplace requires more than a stated policy; it requires us—both individually and collectively—to question our assumptions and the business practices based on these assumptions. While research suggests that a majority of employees consider themselves allies, few know how to be effective in that role—a role that is particularly critical in addressing subtle but pervasive acts of microaggression and unfair hiring practices.
This two-hour webinar focuses on how to evaluate current workplace inequities based on demographics (race, age, gender, disability) and create a task force to address them. Participants will create a plan to increase diversity of hiring, inclusion, engagement, and representation in leadership positions. Participants will leave with a clear pathway to a compliant, more inclusive work environment for all employees.

After the workshop, learners should be able to...

  1. Understand the importance of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
  2. Understand how to use data collection and analysis to determine the need for change.
  3. Create a strategy design to match their business objectives.
  4. Create a plan for implementation of the initiative, including future evaluation of the plan.
