Workplace Diversity & Inclusion Online Training
Embrace Differences. Inclusive Culture. Eliminate Prejudice.
“A study conducted by Telus revealed that around one-third of respondents didn’t find their workplace safe and inclusive for gay and lesbian employees. This subsequently has a ripple effect on their work environment, concerns about losing out on a career advancement, and fear for personal safety. As a result, many LGBTQ individuals facing discrimination in the workplace suffer from mental health issues with higher levels of depression and anxiety.”
“Diverse workforces are 35% more likely to have above-average profit margins.”
“Diversity is more than a numbers game; it’s about preparing the workplace. Employers understand that a culture of inclusivity fosters a sense of belonging. It means providing an excellent experience where all employees reach their potential.”
“Without diverse leadership, women are 20% less likely than straight white men to win endorsement for their ideas; people of color are 24% less likely; and LGBTs are 21% less likely.”
Today’s workforce is multifaceted and comprised of employees with distinct differences, cultures, and even work environments. Building diverse and inclusive teams fully leverages employee morale, improves retention and gives companies a competitive edge. Learning to understand and appreciate each other’s cultural differences and perspectives is a vital step to building a workforce that is effective as well as inclusive – this is where education plays a valuable role.
A key component of many corporate social responsibility (CSR) plans is the commitment to foster a respectful, inclusive workplace as part of your corporate culture. Corridor’s diversity and inclusion training was crafted with subject matter expert Renée Bazile-Jones, associate of the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion. Renée is an expert equity, diversity and inclusion trainer with deep experience and skills, a sought-after speaker and lecturer on the diversity and integration change management in both Canada and the United States.
The Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion defines diversity and inclusion as: “DIVERSITY is about the individual. It is about the variety of unique dimensions, qualities and characteristics we all possess. INCLUSION is about the collective. It is about creating a culture that strives for equity and embraces, respects, accepts and values difference. DIVERSITY and INCLUSION is about capturing the uniqueness of the individual; creating an environment that values and respects individuals for their talents, skills and abilities to the benefit of the collective.”
Diverse perspectives promote innovation, creative thinking and objectivity, leading to more productive problem solving. Diverse teams that include women, new or different cultures, LGBTQ, and Indigenous people benefit from new ideas and different approaches to support projects and identify opportunities. Multiple voices cultivate new perspectives and “out of the box” thinking boosting your company’s intellectual potential. The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Canadian Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development said in talking about diversity,
“…It is not only a social value, but an economic one. In the boardroom, as in life, multiple perspectives lead to innovative thinking and better performance. In short, there’s money in gender equality and diversity and we need to take advantage of that.”
