Embracing Diversity in Organizations through Mindfulness – 3 Hour Online Workshop (V215)

Creating Common Ground for Innovation and Performance

Globalization and immigration have made the workplace diverse. In some large organizations there could be people from as many as 100 different nations representing different cultures, ethnic groups and religious backgrounds.

How can organizations harness the richness of this diversity, at the same time, create a common ground for everyone to work in harmony to innovate and perform?

Culture and conditioning define many aspects of how we think, feel, and act. These can develop in certain biases and prejudices. These biases, unchecked, can make it difficult to bridge cultural differences and bring people together into a functioning team.

This three-hour session is designed to help people identify some blind-spots in their worldviews through a mindful reflection and to consider accepting differences through some open and frank conversations.

There will be an introduction to a basic mindfulness and empathy-based communications methods to help people become comfortable to begin a journey of inquiry on diversity.

This is a half-day virtual live workshop.

Space is still available for all course dates listed, unless otherwise noted.
