Diversity Training is Good, But…


Merriam-Webster defines diverse as:

  1. Differing from one another: unlike < people with diverse interests >
  2. Composed of distinct or unlike elements or qualities: < a diverse population >


Most employers and employees agree that diversity in the workplace is a very good thing, as is Diversity and Inclusion Training. But how can an employer maximize creativity and productivity after achieving a diverse work force? Answer, stop talking so much about employees’ differences and instead focus on employees’ similarities. Place greater emphasis on the Inclusion part. Form a cohesive unit committed to accomplishing the mission.
