Embracing the Babble of Diversity





About the Course

The number of terms being bandied about in the Diversity and Inclusion space can be intimidating – cultural appropriation, LGBTQ2S+, cis-gendered, heteronormative, micro-aggressions, etc.  This presentation helps clarify what is being talked about while making the evidence-based case that diverse teams and organizations are more productive and creative.  This presentation makes the business case for diversity and inclusion initiatives.
