Wed, May 28, 2014 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT Edit Date

Today's workforce and organizations are increasingly diverse. Effective non-profits need to be capable of welcoming, including, utilizing and working with diverse people, perspectives, styles, and experiences for overall success and capacity.

This presentation offers practical tools and concepts designed to resolve tensions, utilize strengths, support collaboration, and create more welcoming environments.

Takeaways:

  • A goal of diversity: community that works together to create a better world and community where everyone is more or less comfortable
  • A multi-dimensional model of diversity for all of us
  • A diversity survey that can help give your group a better sense of its own diversity issues and potential goals
  • How role awareness helps integrate diverse people, views, styles, experiences and “others”
  • How role switching enhances understanding, relationships, and reduces polarized conflicts and styles
  • How rank awareness helps individuals and groups realize the impact of rank on relationships and communication, for better and worse
