Diversity Version 3.0 - Organizational Development and Continuous Education

This perspective paper discusses the concept that diversity in the workplace has steadily evolved over the last couple decades. Originally it focused primarily on race, but later broadened to include the promotion of women, people with disabilities and the LGBT community. Now, the definition of diversity is expanding further to include aspects such as physical characteristics, background, family status, military service, personality and work style. Today, in essence, diversity is all of the ways that we are similar and different to one another.

A Hole in One… (from The Future of Work™)

Technology is definitely a factor in a lot of situations and generational misunderstandings. Many in today’s workforce grew up with technology. For them, information has always been a click away. Different ways of working can sometimes cause confusion and keep us from connecting or being effective. Sometimes we need to explore our differences and develop ways to work together more effectively. The M.E.E.T.® model can help us learn from each other in mutually beneficial ways.

What Did I Say? (from The Future of Work™)

During a team meeting, you had an employee or staff member who uses a disrespectful word without realizing it. What do you do? Shaming and blaming can get in the way of our learning... and our relationships. That means we need to know how to recognize, respond, and recover when something we say, hear or observe is offensive or has a harmful impact on others. That’s what inclusion in action means… taking intentional actions to stay connected and support belonging.

You have an employee who tells you they can't believe a coworker is a lesbian. They also tell you that they can no longer work with that employee. As a manager, what do you do? Ideally, organizational policies will give you some guidance on how to address sexual orientation questions and issues - from a compliance standpoint. But beyond that, there are team morale and productivity issues that need to be addressed when and if this type of situation arises.
