About this course

Diversity management can be seen as an internal process aiming at creating a positive work environment by taking individual differences into consideration. Diversity is about acceptance and respect. On the other hand, diversity is also a cause of misunderstanding, suspicion and conflict in the workplace that can result in absenteeism, poor quality, low morale and loss of competitiveness.

Course objectives

Diversity is seen as something that is good for business and for the work environment. According to the diversity paradigm, a diverse workforce should be considered a competitive advantage. In a constantly changing world organizations need to adapt to rapidly changing markets. A workforce mirroring the structure of the market is able to react swiftly to evolving environments.

Higher innovation level, improved change acceptance, better customer understanding, unlocking new avenues for talent are just a few positive outcomes in organizations with focus on diversity and inclusion management.

Diversity and inclusion management can also provide tools for helping organizations deal with the changing structure of society due to immigration.

In this course we will be blending theory and practice in order to provide substance to the discussion on diversity and inclusion management. The aim is to provide each participant with practical tools for creating a diversity program.

Subject background

Diversity management is one of the keys to growth in today’s extremely competitive market. Organizations cannot hide behind lack of cultural intelligence. Organizations that seek market or societal relevancy must embrace diversity in how they think and act. Diversity is not only about making the numbers but rather how an organization treats its people authentically down to the roots of its aim or business model.  Diversity management is a time-sensitive business imperative in organizations of today. In times of extensive immigration, diversity management can be used as a set of tools to integrate.
