Lesson Plan

Diversity Training is any course designed to promote good intergroup communication, decrease prejudice and discrimination, improve work interactions between groups, and generally teach people who are differently from each other how to work effectively together. The term Diversity Training has come to be used in a wider range of situations in which the human resources department of an organization can play a vital role in increasing the diversity of their workforce. As the demand for qualified employees grows, more organizations are requiring diversity programs as a matter of corporate policy.

Diversity Training can be provided through both onsite and offsite training. An in-depth study of a company's demographics will allow the manager to develop a diversity strategy for his or her company. These strategies should involve a mix of approaches. In-house trainings might be sufficient if a small number of employees have been found to be at-risk of diversity issues. However, a successful diversity program requires that employees be tested in a number of different settings to determine whether or not they can handle diversity effectively.

In addition to the demographic research, an organizational manager should also engage in an in-depth examination of his or her own staff as well as that of the field in which they are employed. Once the demographics of an organization and its field are considered, it becomes more possible to identify areas of risk that can be addressed with proper training.

Once the potential hazards in the workplace have been identified, the manager should then decide on the best course of action to address them. There are many diverse training methods which can be used to enhance employee effectiveness. In-house seminars, workshops, and one-on-one discussions can all be effective. However, these are often not enough to address the unique challenges faced by employees in different fields or even across different departments within an organization.

There are organizations which are dedicated to providing the most appropriate and diverse training programs for their employees. These organizations provide diverse training options tailored for all employees. These employees can choose to enroll in one of their diverse courses, or they can choose to enroll in multiple courses depending on their needs. Many of these diverse training programs are based on the particular type of workplace in which they will be held, such as:

{T *Diversity Training* *Employee Development: The Employee Development course will teach all employees about the importance of diversity within an organization and the various types of diversity. such as racial, sexual, religious, and other forms of diversity.

{T *Diversity Training* The diversity training offered by these organizations does not only address the diverse workforce within their workplace.
