Geography Covered: Global | Duration: 35 minutes


In the new millennium, organizations are comprised of a variety of races, cultures, religions, ages, and lifestyles that interact regularly, making workplace diversity training even more crucial. The norms that dictated behavior a half-century ago are transforming. To be successful in today’s corporate environment, employers and employees must develop an awareness of diversity within their business through appropriate diversity training in the workplace. Proper training can assist organizations in this development. 

Diversity in the workplace is apparent in everything from our names to the types of food we eat, and long-taboo subjects are now discussed freely. People with disabilities often work alongside openly gay co-workers, and a variety of languages is spoken by employees and customers alike. Human conditions from obesity and dwarfism to mental illness and alcoholism are treated with increasing sensitivity and openness.

Federal, state, and local workplace-diversity laws exist to protect employees and to encourage a safe and productive work environment. Thomson Reuters Inclusion and Diversity training provides online cultural sensitivity training explaining these laws, and also (1) emphasizes the importance of treating everyone with respect and dignity and (2) demonstrates how embracing diversity training in the workplace can be a sound business strategy.
