Workplace Diversity and Inclusion

The following are the four most popular workshops and webinars in our diversity and inclusion series. Offerings may be combined in a series or presented independently. Our additional modules and consulting services are listed following these most-requested ones.

Introduction to Diversity and Inclusion Workshop

This workshop helps employees understand what diversity and inclusion are and why they are critical to mission accomplishment. Participants will learn the business case for diversity and inclusion and discuss some of the gaps their agency and organization have in meeting their goals. Participants will be introduced to concepts that allow them to explore their own unconscious biases and how behaviors are manifested from these preferences. They will develop a working definition of diversity and how it applies to their organization. The workshop will also delve into the language of diversity and how to be more inclusive with communication and behaviors.

The Language of Inclusion

This session explores the use of language that makes people feel included in the workplace, and language that may unintentionally shut people out. This is an interactive, hands-on workshop. Participants will learn to become more inclusive through the language they use and will develop an increased level of sensitivity and awareness for language and its impact on agency environment. Additionally, participants will define inclusive and non-inclusive language so they can make the case for why it matters, learn the current terminology used to refer to demographic groups in society, and learn how language is evolving. Finally, participants will examine and discuss workplace scenarios that help develop judgment around the appropriate language used to improve workplace environment.

Micro Messaging - Why great leadership is beyond words

A micro-message is a small, sometimes unspoken and unconscious message that is sent and received many times a day. It can be positive or negative. These messages accumulate and can have a powerful impact in the workplace where they can affect employee productivity, morale, absenteeism, and turnover. This workshop will increase awareness of micro-inequities in the workplace. Participants explore the impact of micro-messages on team dynamics, the individual and productivity. Participants develop and practice skills to help minimize the impact of micro-inequities in the workplace.
