What is Diversity Training and Consultancy?
Diversity training is a professional training program designed to facilitate positive intergroup interaction across different diversity types to reduce prejudice and discrimination, and generally teach individuals who are different from others how to work together effectively in a business or team environment. Diversity training in office environment addresses all of the unique things about employees – culture, education, gender expression, religion, indigenous, race, colour, ethnicity, language, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, gender, socio-economic status, age, and physical and mental disability – and the manner in which we work together. This goes beyond being “politically correct” and moves into the realm of learning how to embrace differences among employees and including the valuable inputs and perspectives all employees bring to your company.
The objective of diversity training is to increase participants’ racial, cultural, different diversity type awareness, knowledge, and communication. Diversity training can have lots of benefits to an organisation by helping to prevent civil rights violations, increasing the inclusion of different identity groups, promoting better teamwork, and many more benefits in an inclusive environment. The main goal of a successful diversity training program is to create a positive work environment by helping employees recognise and be tolerant of differences among co-workers.
