The Diversity Series is a 4 part training series designed for managers and employees. We focus on the legal, ethical and practical definitions of diversity and address some of the complex issues organizations and employees face. We explore issues of communication styles, workplace values, conflict, stereotypes, fear and building productive workplace relationships with those who are different from us in a variety of ways.
Program 2, Gender and Sexual Orientation Workplace Issues (20 minutes), begins by dispelling many of the popular stereotypes about men and women, gays and lesbians. We discuss what is acceptable workplace behavior and the fears and concerns that challenge mutual respect and lead to conflict.
