Creating A Respectful Workplace: Valuing Diversity & Eliminating Harassment

Join Chapter 92 for our February Lunch Meeting presented by, Sheila Birnbach, President of Birnbach Success Solutions.  As our society is increasingly diverse, organizations and their leaders must work to understand, accept, and optimize differences.  Valuing, nurturing, and utilizing the unique talents and contributions of all individuals means greater creativity and a deeply enriched and strengthened organization, capable of greater innovation and capacity for change. 

This lunch workshop will enable participants to value diversity by:

  • Recognizing unconscious values, biases, stereotypes and false assumptions
  • Enhancing sensitivity to issues of difference and the effects of prejudice
  • Respecting differences
  • Developing tolerance for individuality
  • Identifying behaviors that value diversity and meet the needs of those who are different
  • Protecting your organization from potential charges of harassment or discrimination
