Cultural Diversity: What is it and Why Does it Matter?

Judy Clark, HR Answers
Creating a work environment where diversity is valued and honored isn't as simple as knowing the numbers or spouting clichés. Diversity doesn’t just mean differences in races, genders, or ages. It is much more complicated and nuanced than that. Diversity encompasses differences in values, thought processes, backgrounds, and education – just to mention a few. This session will provide information about the way our differences affect us, methods to better communicate when differences are significant, and highlight specific actions that we can take to develop a more diversity-respectful workplace.
