PRST 670 Fostering Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace 3.0 Credits

Diversity in the workplace has moved beyond calculating a broad range of employee demographics. Employers are focusing on including and elevating diverse voices and diverse perspectives at the table to create more innovative services and products to gain a competitive edge. Abundant evidence demonstrates that diverse teams are more creative and productive than those characterized by homogeneity. But, inclusion cannot happen in a vacuum. Leadership must foster and support diversity and inclusion to create an environment where all employees are empowered to be productive and innovative. Students will begin with a historical look at workplace diversity and inclusion, and examine companies with varying degrees of success in fostering diversity and inclusion--and consumer trust-- learning from successes/failures.
