Workshop Description

This is a live virtual event using Zoom, an online meeting platform. Please check system requirements prior to registering.

This workshop is offered through ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership.

When diversity and cultural differences lead to misunderstandings or distrust, they are often viewed as challenges to manage within our work environments. However, they are better viewed as valuable assets to organizational health. This workshop examines specific elements of diversity and culture as they relate to communicating, power differentials, and experiences of discrimination. Participants will learn strategies for working with differences and promoting inclusion in the workplace.
