Diversity, in this context, is much broader than recognizing color, sex, or national origin. In order to leverage the benefits of diversity, one must look at all of the dimensions that make people unique: ethnicity, gender identity, upbringing, physical attributes, values, political beliefs, personal attributes, cultural background as well as religious beliefs. It is also not just about recognizing this diversity but creating opportunities to leverage those strengths. A business will succeed and innovate when they learn to leverage the diversity present in their workforce. Managing cultural diversity is also a foundation for building a team and is critical when organizations come together in an outsourced relationship. This presentation deals with learning about cultural diversity, creating a process for it, and leveraging it in an organization.
Two presentation formats:
