Build Awareness of diversity

Become aware of and gain an appreciation for diversity and broaden your understanding of culture.

Frame diversity as an asset

Acknowledge the value of diversity and consider how you may benefit from recognizing diversity and get to know your co-workers and customers/clients on a deeper level.

Explore concepts: stereotype, bias

Develop an understanding of these concepts and consider the implications of each in work settings, e.g. how your bias or stereotypes may influence the way that you work with other people or how you perceive customers/clients.

Explore concept of respect

Learn some of the many different ways people communicate respect. This can help you consider the importance of cultural sensitivity and could reduce workplace conflict.

Consider barriers to inclusion

Become aware of some of the barriers that challenge inclusion through examples. This can help you make important changes to your work to enhance inclusion.

Work through exclusionary scenarios

Consider how some interactions act to exclude others, and reflect on ways to make workplaces more inclusive. Discussion questions will prompt you to apply the learning to your work.

Taking action

Reflect on your learning and list the ways you can take action to make your workplace and community more welcoming to diverse populations.

It’s not about just taking the training—it’s about how you apply the training that really matters!
