Strategies for Getting Hired: The Future of Workplace Diversity & Inclusion
The Strategies for Getting Hired panel, will define the importance of workplace diversity and inclusion as understanding, accepting and valuing differences and similarities between people of diverse races, ethnicities, genders, ages, sexual orientation, and persons with disabilities. Often times, when we think of diversity, we consider race and/or gender. However, diversity is a much broader concept. Diversity is the idea that a workplace should be inclusive and reflective of the greater society.
Together, we will discuss two main categories of diversity:
- Inherent diversity, such as race, gender, and age; and
- Acquired diversity, such as educational background, values, and abilities
