Course Description

As the labor force becomes increasingly diverse, a strong emphasis is being placed on diversity-related issues of all kinds in the workplace. Diversity in the workplace may result from differences in individual characteristics such as gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, religion, and physical ability/disability. Organizations need to address diversity issues in some manner if they are to compete effectively in a global economy. But what should an organization actually do about increased diversity in the workplace other than watch it happen? To address this question, this course examines issues related to managing and being a member of an increasingly diverse workforce. Learning how to deal with these issues in a manner that preserves the integrity and takes advantage of the contributions of all members of the workforce, regardless of their personal characteristics and group memberships, is encouraged.
