About This Course
We live and work in a diverse world where individuals have a mix of ideas, cultures, religions, beliefs, geographical backgrounds, races, and economic statuses. In this course we will explore these differences to understand the positive impact diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) can have on both the company and the individual. We will provide insights into the steps needed as an individual in the organization to accept, respect, and value DEI in the workplace.
Understanding Social Identity
Examples of social identities are race/ethnicity, gender, social class/socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, (dis)abilities, and religion/religious beliefs.
