WHY INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP TRAINING?
While many companies and organizations have initiatives to increase diversity and they recognize the importance of DEIB initiatives overall, very few offer Inclusive Leadership training for managers to learn how to lead these more diverse workforces.
In a recent study by HR.com, "The Future of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging 2023", only one-tenth of the 255 organizations they studied offered DEIB Learning & Development training for all of their managers.
The transformation to a more diverse and inclusive workplace is a journey that needs education, development, and ultimately an implementation plan.
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This course is designed for managers needing additional support to lead effectively as the workplace and workers' needs change. Do any of the following scenarios resonate with you?
