Diversity Courses - Open Minds Open Doors

Diversity in the workplace is not limited to the inclusiveness of different races, cultures, gender, nationalities or religion; it extends to people of different sexual orientations, ages, disabilities - and even working styles - among others. The term is constantly evolving, but the essence of its core message remains the same: in today's progressive world it is essential to recognize and celebrate differences, on a professional, public and personal scale.

Employers don't just have a corporate responsibility towards diversity in the workplace, but a social one too. Organizations with an effective diversity program benefit from a range of talent and ideas, and from the satisfaction and rewards of healthy employee relationships.

But it isn't just employers or human resource departments that need to take responsibility for diversity in the workplace: it's everyone. Diversity courses help the entire workforce to develop its understanding of discrimination, equality, tolerance and diversity - and it's important that everyone is offered this training.

Employer Commitment

Employers and HR personnel are required to have a thorough understanding and implementation of federal and state laws surrounding diversity, equality, discrimination and harassment. 

Federal laws include:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII)
  • the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA)
  • the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • the Equal Pay Act (EPA)

Many states also have their own employment discrimination laws. Diversity courses can ensure employers and HR teams are equipped to meet these vital state and local government equal employment measures and requirements. 

It is also important for organizations to have a clear diversity plan and/or program, so that all employees understand how the company is working towards achieving diversity. Diversity courses can help companies develop strategies of implementation and the best methods of communicating their diversity efforts.

Professional Training Areas and Course Content

Diversity courses cover a wealth of different topics related to the area, from specific training for HR professionals, to all-encompassing employee understanding. Whether you're looking to find training for the entire company, or to enhance your knowledge as an individual, diversity courses can help you start your journey. 

Course content can include:

  • Equality, participation and inclusion
  • Managing diversity and inclusion
  • Closing the generation gap in the workplace
  • Teacher and instructor training courses - for those teaching children or teaching diversity
  • Cross-cultural awareness
  • Training courses and certifications for HR professionals
