Diversity training is becoming increasingly important in the modern workplace. Besides the benefits of a diverse workforce on recruiting, hiring, retention, customer loyalty and the bottom line, promoting diversity and inclusion can help reduce incidents of harassment in the workplace. A lack of diversity and inclusion is one of the top risk factors for workplace harassment, according to a report by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s task force on workplace harassment. Diversity training offers organizations a new way to enhance anti-harassment and discrimination programs and policies, and reinforce the message that respect, diversity and inclusion is a priority.
What is Diversity Training?
Diversity training is an opportunity to educate employees on the importance of working together with people from different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs. It is also an effective tool for raising awareness of cliques, unconscious bias and other inappropriate behavior that can negatively impact individuals, team-building and workplace culture.
By providing employees with the knowledge and skills to increase their “cultural competency” — the ability to interact effectively with people of different backgrounds and cultures — diversity training helps create an inclusive environment, where employees who may feel left out or marginalized have opportunities to thrive and participate in the organization’s operations and leadership.
