I'm Color Blind (Original Version)
This vignette presents the concept of feedback within a diversity context. Also covered is the necessity to recognize hidden/unconscious bias.
White Guys Need Not Apply (Original Version)
Inclusion is for everybody! We've paid a lot of attention to overcoming the past exclusion of women and minorities in the workplace - in terms of their roles and how they should be treated. But we don't give a lot of thought as to how those changes have affected white men. Organizations today must carry out efforts to increase their race, gender, and diversity in ways that don't exclude or unfairly disadvantage any group.
TrainingBytes® Using Correct Pronouns
Pronouns, just like personal names, are connected to a person's identity. Gender pronouns are words that an individual (co-worker, customer, vendor, etc.) would like others to use when talking to or about them. The most commonly used pronouns are “he, him, his” and “she, her, hers.” People who are transgender, nonbinary, or gender nonconforming may choose to use pronouns that don't conform to binary male/female gender categorizations, such as "they, them, theirs."
Being F.A.I.R.™ How Can I Be F.A.I.R.?
We all want to be treated fairly. And we all want to be seen like we're being fair with others, right? So, the question is, how do we do that? The key is to have a common way to talk about and practice being fair. And that's what the F.A.I.R. tool does.
Being F.A.I.R.™ What is Cultural Competency?
Diversity is a fact of life in our organizations. So, the question is, "how can we use our awareness of diversity to be more effective?" Being culturally competent means having the ability to recognize and respond to our similarities and differences; and make better decisions based on that understanding.
Being F.A.I.R.™ What is Diversity, Really?
As well know well, diversity is all about relationships. The similarities and differences that exist among employees, customers, and suppliers are what create diversity in the workplace. When we talk about diversity, one of the most important things to understand is that it's about culture. Culture is a way of living, thinking, doing being and believing. It has to do with things like dress, customs, language, and beliefs.
Being F.A.I.R.™ Program Summary
The point of understanding the impact of diversity and being culturally competent by using the F.A.I.R.™ approach isn't just to ensure we'll all be nice to each other. Our organizations are in business to accomplish a task. And that takes the cooperation of employees and customers.
Everyday Diversity™ Are You Speaking English?
Providing customer service over the phone can be hard, particularly when someone has an accent that is hard to understand. While it can be frustrating not being able to communicate easily, the reality is that everyone in the world has an accent. We only notice it when we are speaking with people who don’t share our native language.
Everyday Diversity™ Happy Holidays!
When the holiday season comes around, many people - by default - wish others a "Merry Christmas." But for people who don’t celebrate Christmas, this can feel disrespectful... and even rude. A key component of being respectful includes using appropriate holiday greetings during the holiday season.
Everyday Diversity™ They Went to School...Where?
Bias and stereotypes can impact us in many ways... including assuming that just because someone didn’t go to prestigious university - they won’t be a great employee. So, when we are reviewing resumes for new hires, it is important to not let those biases keep us from seriously considering candidates for reasons like the school they attended.
Everyday Diversity™ What's His Problem Anyway?
When we think about people with a disability – we typically think about visible or mobility related disabilities. But, in reality, many disabilities are hidden. When someone asks for an accommodation – that is between them and their manager. It isn’t anyone else’s business.
Your Path to Success™ Embracing Civility
In today's fast-paced world, a simple social media post or email can lead to hurt feelings...lost jobs and maybe even a lawsuit. Simply put, uncivil actions disrupt the workplace! But... being civil is not about just being polite or having good manners.
Your Path to Success™ Embracing Inclusion
Inclusion in the workplace only exists when we create a culture that makes a space for everybody to be present, participate, contribute and feel valued. When we think about inclusion, we think about words like: belonging… fitting in… acceptance… togetherness… engagement… Now, when there’s a culture of inclusion, people don’t feel like have to hide any part of who they are – they can simply be “real” at work.
Your Path to Success™ Understanding Diversity
Diversity has to do with human differences. So… a lot of times when people say “diversity” what they really mean is race or gender or ethnicity. Diversity is much more than that – it’s any point of difference. It can be differences in race or gender, but it also could be differences in work style, differences in personalities, differences in terms of our organizational cultures… any type of difference that matters.
Your Path to Success™ Understanding Hidden Bias
We are all socialized into our cultural heritage, whether we know it or not. We learn language, values, and beliefs as well as “who is one of us” and “who is not” from our experiences in our cultures. Many of these beliefs remain even when presented with contradictory information or evidence. Bias can be expressed blatantly or through subtle messages.
F.A.I.R. in Action™ for Managers

Are You Giving 110%?
The concept of respect within a diversity context; an example of different perspectives on work/life balance.
Everyday Diversity™ Avoiding Bias in Hiring
Bias impacts how we see candidates and often limits our ability to find and hire the best talent. Why? Because we often make assumptions about the candidates. Everyone makes assumptions about others... it's a natural part of how we interact with each other. Probably more times than we'd like to admit, we let appearances impact the way we think and treat others.
Everyday Diversity™ Exploring Filters
When it comes to interacting with others in the workplace, we all have filters. Our filters are made up of our experiences, our upbringing, beliefs… and so much more. When it comes down to it, these filters impact how we perceive and understand the world around us. The key is learning how to use these filters to our advantage!
