While all employees benefit from training in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, there are additional benefits and reasons to provide training on this topic to your leadership team.

 

  1. Leaders need to “walk the talk.” Spending time and money on training your workforce to be more inclusive will fall flat if those actions are not modeled by organizational leaders.   Make sure your leadership team understands how their actions can demonstrate equity and inclusion.

 

  1. Improve the diversity of your organization by ensuring that your leaders use recruitment and hiring techniques that draw a diverse candidate pool.

 

  1. More and more the younger workforce expects to work for an organization that supports their social values in equity and inclusion. Make sure that your leadership team reflects your organization’s values and retains high-quality hires.

 

Use these courses to prepare your leaders for the future of workforce:

Managing a Diverse Workforce

Inclusive Leadership

Unconscious Bias for Leaders

Microaggressions
