Description

Diversity and cultural differences are often seen as challenges to manage within our work environments. However, they can also be valuable assets. This workshop helps participants to examine specific elements and dynamics of diversity and inclusion as they relate to culture, identity, communicating across difference, power differentials and experiences of discrimination. Tools and strategies will be reviewed to assist workplaces to promote inclusion and experience the many benefits of diversity at work.

In support of our local community, each year ACHIEVE offers one free workshop. Please note – Registration is limited to two individuals per organization.
