With the world becoming more mobile and diverse, diversity has taken on a new importance in the workplace. This training program will examine the effects of diversity within the workplace and how organizations have adapted to change in it demographic to gain the competitive advantage. You will examine the roles of language, culture, social psychology, personality, and cognitive processes to determine how these work together to create the magnification and maintenance of stereotypic differences between and among groups. This training program will give you an opportunity to explore human diversity from a wide range of theoretical and methodological perspectives that are causative and reflective of culture. You will leave this training program with a more profound understanding of diversity within the workplace. You will understand misconceptions and even prejudice where it exists and why it should be replace by knowledge. We are each responsible for changing our stereotypes and breaking down the barriers. Are your own assumptions based on things you have heard from others, or on school, TV, or the movies? Is it possible that some of your negative images are incorrect -- at least for some people in a certain group? Rather than making sweeping generalizations, try to get to know people as individuals. This will reduce the stereotypes you hold of others, it is also likely to help reduce the stereotypes others hold of you.
