Creating An Inclusive Organization/Business

Monday, November 15, 2021

Workforce Services is offering a FREE business education series for Frederick County business owners, executives, HR specialists, and employees! All can benefit from this high-level, value-added professional training to streamline processes, build strategic plans and develop effective practices during the pandemic and beyond. The professional series will include an engaging and interactive three-hour session each month. These sessions will be taught by certified instructors and business professionals who will pass along relevant, meaningful content, and advice to make your business more successful. You do not have to attend each session in the series to participate - but space is limited, so sign up while you can!

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The pandemic and social upheaval of 2020 brought issues of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) into the national consciousness in an unprecedented way. Moving forward, businesses and organizations must create workplaces that support, develop and enhance the work and lives of all employees. Rather than viewing DEI as an uncomfortable topic to be avoided, businesses and organizations can embrace the positive opportunities, value, and higher-level understanding that comes with doing the work. In this interactive and practical seminar, attendees will:

  • Understand and apply the definitions of diversity, equity, and inclusion

  • Learn the concepts and tools of psychological safety and trust-building as precursors to inclusion

  • Understand the business and innovation case for a diverse and inclusive workforce

  • Review the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission laws and guidance on prohibited employment policies and practices

  • Create a learning and action plan to foster inclusion practices in the workplace using seven catalysts
