Diversity and Inclusion


Most workplaces reflect society. As a result, most workplaces today have diversity. How well does your organization acknowledge and handle cultural and individual differences in your workplace? Do your employees come to work feeling welcome? Does your organization offer a culture of inclusion? Sahar Andrade, MB.BCh, a diversity, leadership & culture competence consultant can help answer these questions and show ways to create an inclusive culture in any diverse group at an organization. Come to our diversity and inclusion program and learn:

  • Working definitions of diversity, inclusion, culture, and what they entail; and
  • How HR can build a culture of inclusion in any organization.
