Workplace Diversity Training For Your Company

Workplace Diversity Training

Workplace diversity discrimination has become a major issue and fact of corporate life.  With the influx of foreign workers from overseas plus ethnic minorities raised in North America added to a mix of domestic staff who perhaps might not have had much exposure to people from different races before, a culture shock of some type is a reality for many.

As a result, it’s always good to expose company staff some type of workplace diversity training and the use of external speakers specializing in diversity is a great way to do this as part of a full workplace diversity training program.  Although there may be internal resources for diversity education at companies, bringing outside diversity speakers will complement internal programs and add more useful angles to diversity especially if speakers come from different fields.

Of course, one of the requirements of a good workplace diversity training speaker is that the person should have had lots of experience with people from very diverse backgrounds including ethnicities, sexual orientations and handicapped individuals.  A speaker of a visible minority would be interesting as well since that person can relate experiences from a minority point of view to corporate audiences.

Workplace diversity speakers who have had working industry experience in environments with diverse workplaces are great since these types of speakers can talk about real life examples of diversity success stories from the working world.  These types of examples will help company staff appreciate the need to develop their own diversity skills for their own careers.  This gives them greater incentive to embrace diversity since positive benefits to them and the company are presented.

Diversity speakers also have to outline how workers can develop diversity skills that they can use both within the company with other staff who are different from them as well as those outside of the company like customers, suppliers and other business partners.  These are important business and life skills that are necessary in today’s diverse society in North America.

If these diversity skills can be presented and tried in fun audience activities during presentations, the audience will be able to grasp on to the ideas much more readily as they see immediate benefits from participation.  In other words, high levels of interaction between the speaker and audience will always make for better presentations.

Diversity is often seen as just a negative to be tolerated because getting along with each other is the politically correct thing to do.  Many companies simply make tolerance of different cultures a company policy but this alone may not be enough to get that buy-in of diversity in the hearts of staff.   Diversity in effect, becomes force fed on staff.

Overall, the best type of workplace diversity training speaker is one who can turn actually turn this perceived negative into a positive.  Such a speaker will leave the audience wanting to embrace diversity because of the many positive benefits they realize that could come out of it.  This will give people a new outlook on diversity that they can use for life.  This type of approach facilitated by good programs will be much more effective in helping companies manage diversity to make it an advantage.
