Diversity & Inclusion Training


Managing the Dynamics of Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace

We take great pride in being one of the first HR Consulting firms to offer workforce diversity training to Federal organizations. The year was 1985 and the place was New Orleans.

Our U.S. Navy client requested a workshop that would “go beyond EEO and affirmative action.” He wanted to deal with issues such as conflict between military and civilian cultures and conflicts within those groups,  which included civilian employees who were not happy about being involuntarily transferred from the Washington, DC area to the deep South.

We developed and delivered a workshop called “workforce diversity” that was very new at that time. Our client was pleased; and, we found ourselves expanding into a new area of practice. 

Our workshops in this area make a clear distinction between Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) and EEO and Affirmative Employment (AE) in terms of how they are different and how they are interrelated.

From this important foundation we look at D&I from the perspectives of the cultural diversity (race, gender etc.) that comes into the organization through the hiring process and the organizational diversity (occupations, education etc.) that is created within the organization.

Our basic approach is to create a recognition of the various cultures that make up the organization and its “customer base” in terms of understanding the dynamics of differences that may have an impact on relationships which are important to success.

Our programs in this area range from half day briefings to two-day workshops based upon the clients needs. Given that diversity dynamics are often grounded in the realities of organizational culture we prefer to “customize” our offerings for our clients.
