A SAMPLE PROGRAM
Journey into Diversity
For employers, securing and respecting a diverse workplace is beneficial for all employees--regardless of their positions. By using the knowledge and life experiences that each employee brings to the workplace, employers can improve communication, create a more inclusive climate and foster teamwork and innovation.
Journey into Diversity is a series of customized programs that assist organizations in their efforts to create work environments where employees have an acceptance of co-workers, regardless of backgrounds and to enhance employees' working relationships (team building).
I felt like the training that you all did took this conversation to the next level. . . . For AARP in New Jersey, it is important for this conversation to take place, and to have a safe place where we can explore our own diversity, that of our state, and look at the challenges that we face as a society and individually in “doing for all”. You all provided that experience, and created that safe environment for people to honestly voice their viewpoints and experiences. I heard about many people who feel like they are older and wiser walking away with light bulb moments, and a little healthy discomfort as the they realized that creating an inclusive environment is a process and not a destination that has been reached.
