Acting Inclusively

Harness the power of diversity while maintaining a culture of engagement, belonging, and acceptance.

About This Course

An inclusive work environment that values the diverse background and experiences of each team member results in higher employee engagement, improved innovation, and directly impacts business outcomes. This program helps leaders and employees identify small everyday actions that result in an overall inclusive work culture.

Where most Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) programs focus on theoretical concepts, Acting Inclusively shares evidence-based practices and active-learning techniques to teach and reinforce actions and behaviors. These efforts will help your organization harness the power of diversity while cultivating a culture of engagement, belonging, and acceptance.

In this highly engaging course, you will examine your own attitudes and explore how to take actions that promote a healthy organizational culture where all feel welcomed, wanted, and are encouraged to engage and contribute.

This one-week course is ideal for:

  • Human Resource Professionals
  • Diversity and Inclusion Practitioners
  • Managers and Leaders
  • All Professionals interested in maintaining a diverse culture that values engagement, belonging, and acceptance
