Developing a Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Program
Diversity, inclusion, and belonging (DIBs) isn't just a buzzword. DIBs programs can have real impact on employees' productivity and welfare. Think about the best group you ever belonged to - where you felt like everyone cared about you, understood you, and valued you as a part of the group. That is the kind of environment that promotes sharing, innovation, and growth. This course shows HR leaders how to develop a DIBs strategy that builds diverse, inclusive environments where everyone feels like they belong. Dr. Stefanie K. Johnson explains how to create a strategy for your organization and start integrating DIBs into core HR activities, such as recruitment, training, performance evaluations, and promotions.
