Diversity and Inclusion (CITY OF PLANO EMPLOYEES ONLY)

Tuesday, September 8, 2020

This course is part of the Administrative Professional Series. Understanding diversity and learning how to manage its complexity is, perhaps, among the most important challenges we face today. The need to remove barriers and understand the changing nature of the workforce and our communities is paramount. To this end, the workshop will examine the need for creating diverse and inclusive work environments. Some key questions/concepts we will consider: • What is diversity? • Why talk about diversity? • Diversity Map • Diversity Myths • Self-Awareness • Stereotypes we have • Workplace Biases • How do these biases and stereotypes affect my interactions with others? • From Diversity to Inclusion • Ways to create an inclusive work environment The training method involves a mix of group activities and discussions. The materials required would include a setup for PowerPoint presentations, charts, papers, pencils, pens, and sketch pens. PeopleSoft Code AP3601
