Reflecting on Identity and Diversity
Respect for, and responsiveness to, individual differences are critical to developing and maintaining effective relationships in the workplace. This activity helps participants reflect on those factors that have shaped their personal identity (reinforcing the M.E.E.T. Model).
Diversity includes such factors as age, race, ethnic heritage, gender, sexual orientation, work experience, first language, income, family status, military experience, religion and many other unique characteristics. Inclusion is the willingness to go below the surface to connect and discover value through our similarities and differences. The goal of this training activity is to find others who share similar characteristics.
