Diversity and Inclusions Pathway

Realizing the Potential of Sustained Diversity through Dale Carnegie's Diversity & Inclusion Training
The tangible benefits of diversity in the workplace are now well-established. Yet diversity can only deliver on its full potential when it exists in a genuinely inclusive environment. Dale Carnegie's new Diversity and Inclusion: Cultural Awareness and Competency training helps us understand the hidden biases that can keep us from achieving inclusivity and equity within our organizations.
Develop the tools for the self-awareness and cultural competency needed for your organization to perform at its highest level.

The benefits of diversity in the workplace include faster problem-solving, better decision-making, increased innovation, employee engagement, and better financial performance. Diversity, however, can only deliver on its full potential when it exists in a genuinely inclusive environment. An organizational culture that does not make talented, diverse employees feel valued and supported is certain to lose them, increasing the cost of turnover and lowering morale and productivity.

Achieving Inclusion through Cultural Awareness

 

Struggling with our own biases is part of what it means to be human, but research suggests that increasing our cultural awareness and cultural competency can help us contribute to a genuinely inclusive environment that supports sustained diversity.

 

5 Common DEI misconceptions that are ruining the workplace and hurting your organization

 

Myth #1 Diversity, equity, and inclusion only benefit minority groups.

Reality: Although minorities stand to gain the most immediate results of successful diversity programs, DEI actually benefits everyone, especially those working in an organization or team of people. Organizations with higher rates of diversity, for example, enjoy better employee engagement and less turnover. Those are two key metrics of more satisfied employees, which in itself results in higher productivity and profitability. On top of that, a diverse workforce leads to less groupthink, which is a serious inhibitor of innovation and performance.
