Beyond Race: Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace for supervisors offered virtually on Oct. 14

Submitted by Human Capital Services — Learning and Development

Beyond Race: Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace will be offered from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 14, via Zoom.

This session will address the importance of employees seeing beyond the race of their colleagues and understanding characteristics most notably associated with a positive and productive work environment. This session will help participants understand their own characteristics, their colleagues' characteristics, and how this knowledge can help make our work environment better in a variety of ways.

This session will help participants:

  • Explore diversity in action.
  • Understand identity and intersectionality.
  • Gain an awareness of cultural norms and communication strategies for a diverse workplace.

You must be a current supervisor of university support staff or unclassified professionals to attend this session. This session is offered in conjunction with the K-State Supervisory Foundations Pillar I: Establishing Your Supervisory Foundation certificate program, so seating is limited.

To register for this session, please complete the registration form.
