Today, more than ever, it is imperative for employers and employees to understand their organization’s vision of a positive work culture. Regardless of a person’s role in the company, each employee must be held accountable for the law and for their responsibility to uphold the company’s values, particularly in the areas of diversity, inclusion and anti-harassment standards. This session will include an exploration of basic laws, a presentation of case studies, and a look at the influence of pop culture and social media surrounding these topics. Most especially, a discussion of what you can do to promote a positive culture will be covered.

Civility in the Workplace: How Values and Virtues Build People and Culture
With so many negative role models permeating our culture, online and in the media, today more than ever we must focus on treating each other with respect and civility - fostering virtues of trustworthiness, goodness, kindness, joy and peace in the workplace. This workshop challenges you to honestly examine the values and virtues that currently permeate your workplace. Then we invite your team to collaboratively identify and adopt a company code of behavior that is empowering and engaging for all. Together you can root out patterns of incivility that damage relationships, team work and productivity, making way for greater engagement, commitment and employee satisfaction.
Diversity, Inclusion, and Hidden Bias
“Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance.” -Verna Myers. We believe in organizations that place value on respect and dignity in their environments. Diversity is the representation of all our varied identities and differences in the workplace. This training is designed to engage, question and draw on a variety of perspectives. Inclusion = uniqueness + belonging. We believe that through affirming our similarities, as well as valuing our unique differences, we can build cultures of belonging by inviting participation of all people. Lastly, we will learn that we all possess bias, and in that learning we’re taking an important step in understanding the roots of stereotypes that can lead to prejudice. It’s only when we examine our own hidden bias, we can acknowledge and come to appreciate different points of view that lead to healthy work cultures of acceptance and inclusion.
