The term equity, diversity and inclusion is a phrase that is used to describe programs that promote participation of different groups of individuals within the corporate processes. This includes professionals of various races and ethnicities, ages, genders, religions, cultures, sexual orientations as well as abilities and disabilities. Diversity sometimes also includes the range of ideas and perspectives evident in the workforce.

In today’s multi-cultural workforce, these concepts are considered critical to promote equal opportunities in the workplace. Over the years, each of these concepts have been highlighted in various corporate efforts and all are important to bring together professionals with varying perspectives and ideas to create a value centered team and organization.

In this training, we explore the concepts of diversity, equity and inclusion each as a separate component of a strong human resource process. We will then take a look at how the combined concepts can bring ultimate value to your workplace and business.

Course was on point concerning the DEI examples. Having a workforce that embraces the 7 Pillars of Inclusion is far rewarding to a company than one that does not. Great class!!!
