Diversity & Inclusion

Customized Diversity & Inclusion Solutions

Diversity, equity, & inclusion will be one of the most important issues that companies will tackle in the coming decade. We are seeing a more diverse workforce than ever before & unity within your organization will determine your growth and the bottom line going forward. Elevate’s Uniting Diversity in the Workplace program will empower your organization to develop solutions by celebrating diversity within your workplace. You and your staff will be guided through difficult conversations and decisions to create cultural awareness from within. This series was not designed simply to fulfill your diversity compliance requirements, rather get to the root of the problem and unite your workforce to create a more inclusive workplace for everyone, regardless of your culture! Prepare yourself and your workforce to meet every challenge by embracing diversity to include a broader vision for a brighter future.

Cultural Competency

The main challenge with any diverse workforce is cultivating a genuine culture of respect among its members. Creating this culture requires an understanding of diversity and its benefits, and the subtle ways it can be disrupted that can be lead to unnecessary conflicts, reduced outcomes, and diminished success. A diverse culture is an asset that can lead to a more engaged workforce and a positive outlook for employees and managers that welcomes differing perspectives.

Leveraging Diversity

At no time in our history has the workplace been so diverse. Leveraging diversity can often be difficult for those in charge unless they have a solid understanding of how diversity works, how it can be beneficial, and how they can leverage it within their organization. Elevate's Leveraging Diversity training is aimed at increasing the participants’ cultural awareness, knowledge, and skills in order to benefit an organization by protecting against civil rights violations, increasing the inclusion of different identity groups, and promoting better teamwork.

Unconscious Bias Series

While we cannot completely rid ourselves of unconscious bias, we can learn how to recognize it and lessen its impact in the workplace. These are skills that everyone can learn. Most people are not aware of how their unconscious biases can affect their behavior, but unchecked, it can have an enormous impact in the workplace and throughout one’s everyday life. In this dynamic virtual program, participants will develop their own awareness of and sensitivity to the wide variety of people that surround them every day. Participants will gain insight and understanding that diversity goes beyond the superficial, and biases can be both, explicit and implicit, and how to implement change.

Implicit Bias

In this dynamic program, your employees will develop their own awareness of sensitivity to the wide variety of people that surround them every day. A crucial aspect of the success of this program would be the understanding that diversity goes beyond the superficial and biases can be both explicit and implicit. Your staff will uncover unconscious bias and become aware of their own personal barriers to communicate and interact effectively with co-workers whose background, culture or personality may be different than their own. The result is a more harmonious and enjoyable work environment for all.
