CORPORATE DIVERSITY TRAINING

People have always needed to work together to succeed in creating profitable businesses.  In today’s business environment, employers have a large pool of talents to select from when hiring, but this variety brings unique challenges of its own when it comes to creating an equal opportunity workplace. This includes hiring people from all walks of life:  different races, religions, languages, lifestyles, and many other unique characteristics. For your organization to succeed, everyone needs to be on the same page and working towards the same goal. Strategy Africa offers Diversity Awareness training to assist employers in creating cultural awareness and inclusion for all employees.​

Diversity training helps participants become aware of other cultures and lifestyles in order to increase empathy among co-workers.  The goal of cultural diversity training is to address the elephant in the room: Poor cross-cultural communication, resentment, and competition for advancement opportunities.

This diversity training addresses the importance of cultural competence, the persistent problem of biases and stereotypes, and how employers and co-workers must learn to work together toward the organization’s goals.

CULTURAL DIVERSITY

For diversity to bring strength, it should be valued in the corporate philosophy. More importantly, it must be integrated into company practices. This takes time and a commitment to celebrate diversity. Workers must be willing to be open-minded and non-judgmental about the value of differences. Without that commitment, cultural diversity can weaken a group. Differences in interpretation of events can lead to miscommunication. If not addressed, awkwardness and hostilities arise. Prejudices will worsen that effect. People can jump to conclusions and misinterpret behaviors.
