Diversity, Inclusion, and Your Workplace

Differences in people are vast -- and that impact the workplace culture more than most people realize.  Take this list, for instance, of the many characteristics of diversity:  

 Age  Disability  Ethnicity
 National Origin  Family Status  Gender
 Gender Identity  Generation  Language
 Organizational Level  Education  Life experiences
 Physical Characteristics  Race  Personality Type
 Religion  Sexual Orientation  Thinking Style
 Veteran Status  Citizenship Status  Region of Residence
 Visual Differences Socio-Economic Status

The need for workplaces to grow a diverse team is often in direct response to a compliance directive such as Affirmative Action.  Yet those organizations who embrace inclusivity realize it attracts a wider range of candidates and brings to the organization a more creative set of critical thinking skills.  

In this session, presenter Glenda Caton will give updates on D&I success in 2019.  She'll share proven, practical tips for growing inclusion in the workplace.  Specifically, you'll speak on gender pay gaps, mental illness and other "unseen" disability," veteran employment, and the #MeTooMovement.  

Glenda Caton, owner of Caton Consulting, LLC, offers her clients expertise forged over two decades through her work in operations, management and human resources.  She specializes in aiding small business owners with human resource (HR) compliance across all eight behavioral HR competencies in the Little Rock area.
