Harmony Strategies

Course description

Cultural Humility

Many companies and organizations are making conscious efforts to further workplace diversity. It’s equally important for these organizations to have an inclusive culture to ensure that diverse voices are appreciated and can thrive. A truly inclusive and diverse workplace is one where employees are appreciated and honored for their differences. When that trust and respect is established, new and creative ideas emerge. As a result, diverse teams are proven to be more innovative and inclusive companies more profitable.

How Diversity and Inclusion Drive Innovation highlights the opportunities that come from diversity in the workplace and building an inclusive culture. Harmony Strategies Group especially highlights:

  • Strategies to honor diversity and ensure the workplace encourages exchanging/ sharing of ideas with leaders and peers
  • The importance of self-reflection and sensitive language
  • How to build a sense of autonomy through interactive activities
  • How to engage with others who may seem different to you and learn about each other

Participants in this Diversity & Inclusion workshop come away with increased awareness around the importance of creating a diverse population, skills to become more inclusive, and practical guidelines to fostering innovation and creativity that drive workplace satisfaction and profitability.
