Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Skills for Future-Ready Leaders

According to studies, disrespectful and uncivil behavior is on the rise in the workplace – while employees state that respect from their leaders is what’s most important to them. At DHR, we know that with a competition for talent, employers must focus their attention on building a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace culture to attract and retain the best and brightest.

DEI training can help you accelerate success around employee engagement, retention and leadership development.

Focus on Workplace Equity

DHR’s Focus on Workplace Equity program is designed to teach the foundational diversity skills required in a respectful, equitable workplace. The emphasis is on behaviors in the workplace and how they impact respectful teams and work groups. In this program, we will also explore the financial impacts of equity and demonstrate the business case for creating a culture of respect.

This plan of courses is designed for all employees in an organization, especially those designated as diversity ambassadors. Upon completion of this program, we encourage leaders to consider the Diversity Ambassadors Academy curriculum to develop the knowledge and tools needed to begin to assist the organization with development and implementation of an effective DEI strategy.
